Groups team up to remove fencing from migration corridor in Wyoming
Written byMARTIN KIDSTON, Billings Gazette
A group of volunteers set off early Sunday into the morning shadows of the North Absaroka Wilderness, where they’ll spend three days and nights working to remove an old fence from an important wildlife migration corridor.
Members of the Wyoming Wilderness Association, joined by the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and the Wyoming Backcountry Horsemen, raced to beat the summer heat as they moved down Jim Mountain Trail to a work camp 10 miles in.
Removing staples, rolling barbed wire and pulling fence posts in 90-degree heat is a tiring and trying task. Three miles of old fencing waits to be removed, and the crews packed in supplies to last for days.VIEW ORIGINAL ARTICLE
