event_description: Join Montana BHA and the National Wildlife Federation for a boots-on-the-ground stewardship project to remove old barbed wire fence on a 200-acre parcel of formerly private land near Wise River, Montana, off the Pioneer Scenic Byway.Recently acquired by the Beaverhead-Deer Lodge National Forest, this parcel contains irrigated pastureland and is adjacent to forest and river-riparian zones, which all provides important summer range and transitional habitat for migratory mule deer, elk, and other native wildlife species. Partners including NWF, BHA, USFS, and RMEF will collaborate to enhance wildlife movement corridors by removing approximately 2 miles of defunct buck and rail and barbed wire fencing. There is also loose barbed wire and garbage left on this parcel from decades of farm use. By improving this habitat and enhancing connectivity for wildlife, we can increase species resilience to environmental change, reduce the risk of fence entrapments for wildlife, and decrease the indirect effects that barriers to wildlife have on access to high quality habitat.Volunteers are welcome to group camp nearby Friday and Saturday night. Montana BHA will be providing dinner for folks Saturday night. Volunteers may also chose to arrive Saturday morning and not camp but should to be ready to go bright and early. All volunteers will meet at the designated location at 7:30am on the 27th. Exact meeting locations and times will be sent to volunteers at least one week in advance.No running water is available. Volunteers will need to come prepared with at least 2 liters of drinking water for the workday, their own meals (besides dinner Saturday night), work gloves, sunglasses or safety glasses, and proper hiking boots. This is difficult work and weather may be variable, so volunteers should be prepared.Volunteers will receive a free dehydrated meal from our state-based corporate partner, Gastro Gnome.Due to the nature of the work, children and dogs are not allowed.*Please only RSVP if you are serious about attending. RSVP numbers help us prepare appropriate meals, tools, and work and no-shows cost us valuable time and effort. However, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, so we ask that you update your RSVP accordingly.
