Beatys Butte Fenceline Retrofit #2
September 9 - September 12
Join ONDA to retrofit fence and help us improve an important migration corridor.
Barbed wire fences present throughout the Beatys Butte area pose risks to wildlife. Low flying sage grouse are known to become entangled in standing fence, while pronghorn and other ungulates may be unable to cross the fence, limiting both their daily movement and seasonal migrations.
The purpose of this project is to removed barbed wire and replace it with smooth, wildlife-friendly wire.
The work each day will involve hiking to the project location, running heavy wire spools, pulling staples and unclipping wire, walking along to spool it up, then stapling and clipping the new wire.
