This trip has been CANCELLED BY THE BLM - DUE TO HUGE FIRES IN THE AREA AND ACCESS-ROAD CLOSURES!!
Volunteers will finish removal of cultural exclosure fencing and hike materials out of the wilderness to a ridgeline. The hike is about 2 miles round trip, and several trips will be made. Tools to be used include: fencing pliers, post jack, bow saw and personal protective equipment. We will camp in a meadow at the end of the road.
To participate, you must be a good hiker who is able to work at high elevations and carry fence materials out from the work site. This project involves hard physical labor.
A separate team will hike to and monitor springs in the area.
The route to the project can be extreme and requires high clearance vehicles. Transportation can be provided.
