Trout Creek Group Monitoring Trip
June 10 - June 13
Join ONDA to help us improve an important migration corridor in the Trout Creek Mountains.
This trip will start a fence-line monitoring project to document barbed wire fences in the area that pose risks to wildlife.
The purpose of this project is to map the location and condition of fence in the Trout Creek Mountains so ONDA can identify sections of fence that would benefit from removal, retrofitting, repair, or flagging to improve wildlife habitat and migration corridors in this critical area.
To map the fences, volunteers will need to walk up to 6 miles a day and use a smart phone or device to record fence conditions. We will camp as a group together and split up during the day for the monitoring work.
The work will require walking over uneven ground for 2-6 miles at a time and using your smart phone or device to record fence conditions. No experience required, we’ll teach you how to use the technology and help you find a suitable section of fence to monitor.
