event_description: Join Montana BHA for a Saturday of stewardship work assisting Miles City BLM with fence removal near Pumpkin Creek. We will be removing approx. .8 miles of dilapidated fence. Fences serve an important role in grazing and rangeland management, and can be an important tool in maintaining rangeland health. While unneeded fences may not hinder rangeland goals, they can be a strike risk to upland birds, provide raptor perches thus increasing predation, and can hinder ungulate movements in the area. The removal of unnecessary fences will benefit local wildlife.We will meet at 8am Saturday morning at (43.5167200, -111.4239000) for a brief introduction and safety brief and work until 4pm. The meeting point can be accessed via Tongue River Rd, south of Miles City. Volunteers are welcome to camp at nearby dispersed camping sites on BLM or show up bright and early. Volunteers should bring: Hiking boots, work gloves, snacks/water, eye protection, clothing layers for a full day outside (long sleeves are encouraged to protect against sun and barbed wire),RSVP below to join us for a weekend of critical habitat stewardship on Pumpkin Creek!Contact hahnebackcountryhunters.org with further questions.*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.
