John Day Fossil Beds National Monument Fence Retrofit – 2
October 11 @ 1:00 pm - October 14 @ 10:00 am
The second trip out to the Clarno unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument to retrofit fences along the boundary of the monument for the benefit of wildlife.
Barbed wire fences present barriers to wildlife movement and fragment landscapes but are sometimes necessary to manage livestock grazing. On this stewardship trip, volunteers will remove the top and bottom strands of barbed wire and replace them with smooth wire. This makes it much easier and safer for wildlife to both jump over the fence and crawl underneath of it.
