Please join CPW, WSCC and BHA as we continue our spring fence removal project. We made some great progress opening up vital river bottom and winter range habitat last year and we're gearing up to get more done this spring. With the increasing amount of development and high fence going up around the North Fork Valley, the goal of these work days are to collaborate with private landowners who have dilapidated or unnecessary fence on their property that's cutting off critical wildlife migration corridors and/or habitat. It's a great way to get some old school exercise on a spring day and benefits the wildlife that live in the valley with us.
Date: March 12, 2022
Location: 39565 Pitkin Rd. Paonia, CO 81428
Duration: estimated 6 hrs. (depending on the number of volunteers)
Activity and Purpose: Open up migration corridor and habitat for mule deer on Pitkin Mesa through removal of high fence on private property; Pitkin Mesa is suffering from overwhelming amounts of high fence as more people move in, build, develop and put up high fence; elk, which used to winter on Pitkin Mesa regularly, have largely been forced out already.
What to bring: work clothes, hiking boots, work gloves, bolt/fence cutters, safety glasses, water for the day, snacks/lunch, good attitude!
