event_description: Help enhance habitat by removing old barbed wire fencing and watch the magical dancing grouse! Registration Closed - Event full!Sorry folks but we need to limit the number of attendees to not overcrowd the lek sites.  Join us for a day or two of fence pulling in Moffat County near Meeker and Maybell, CO. With this fence pull comes a special treat! We will start Saturday and Sunday mornings with a sharp-tailed and greater sage grouse lek viewing with CPW biologist and grouse expert Brian Holmes. If youve never seen these critters do their very elaborate and interesting mating dances I recommend putting this event on your calendar! This project will greatly enhance wintering habitat for elk and mule deer but also the sharp-tailed and greater sage grouse.    What to Expect: Initial meeting at the Smoky River Brewing Friday evening. First round is on us! For those interested in lek viewing, we will need to leave town between 5 and 5:30am. From the lek viewing we will transition to the work site. Volunteers will remove fence staples and wire clips using bolt cutters, roll up wire, and remove T-Posts. BHA will provide Lunch for both days! We will try to finish at a reasonable time so folks will have time to fish, hike, or relax at camp if youre staying for the full weekend. BHA is buying Pizza Saturday night!  Even if you can’t swing the overnight stay we would love to have the help for either day. What to bring for the lek viewing: Warm layers for the early morning chill. You can bring binoculars and or spotting scope as well. There will be some extras to pass around.What to bring for the work day: Leather gloves, safety glasses (sunglasses are fine), and fence tools (pliers, post puller, etc) if you have them but not necessary. Plenty of water, sunscreen, bug spray, and proper clothing for working outside and removing fence (jeans, boots, long-sleeve shirt).What to bring for camping:Camping gear if you intend to stay the night with us at Meeker Town Park. Camping is $12 for a tent spot or $25 for RV. Late April can still be pretty chilly at night, so pack accordingly. For food, BHA is buying Pizza Saturday night or you can bring your own to cook. Bring your fishing rod if you would like, the park is located along the White River. See more information on Meeker Town Park here.
