Make Way for Wildlife!
Barbed wire fence dissects habitats and entangles wildlife. Join us in removing non-purposeful fence within the Soldier Meadows ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern). We will work to remove the wire and wooden or metal posts, leaving the landscape open and unconstrained.
As always, this project is free! We will be providing breakfast with coffee Saturday and Sunday as well as a delicious dinner on Saturday night. We have camping gear available for those who need it. The road to the project area may require 4 wheel drive and high clearance. We will have limited space in Friends trucks to transport volunteers and carpooling is an option as well.
Difficulty: Moderately Strenuous: Project involves carrying heavy loads, working with barbed wire, repetitive movements, and using tools such as shovels, wire clippers, fence clippers, and rollers.
