Steens Backcountry Fence Repair Trip

July 08, 2014

The first of two Backpacking Work Trips on Steens Mountain in 2014. This trip will focus on repairing the "cow free" boundary fence on the edge of the Wilderness area and along the rim of the Donner and Blitzen River. We will backpack into the area near Bill Taber Cabin and spend several days mending wire and repairing rock jacks with the BLM.


Hart Mountain Fence Retrofit

July 24, 2014

Hart Mountain Fence Retrofit Difficulty Rating: 3 out of 5 July 24 (Thursday PM) July 27 (Sunday AM) After years of work helping to remove several hundred miles of obsolete barbed wire fence within Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge, we are now shifting gears to help repair a fence: the boundary fence that keeps cattle out of this Pronghorn and sage grouse stronghold. Hard days' work will be rewarded with soaks in the hot springs and priceless views and memories.
