Volunteers sought for help in fence removal project

Jul 26, 2017 - From staff reports

The Wyoming Wildlife Association invites volunteers to assist in removing an obsolete and unwanted fence from the Shoshone National Forest.

Later, the helpers are welcomed to a "pint night" gathering in Lander to reflect on the day and learn more about the association.

The wildlife enhancement field day project starts at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Participants are asked to meet at the Tie Hack Memorial 12 miles west of Dubois on U.S. Highway 287. There is free parking at the memorial.

"Be prepared for a fun yet full day's work," said organizer Andrea Barbknecht. "Bring your gloves, log-sleeved shirts, working boots and fence pliers if you have them."

She said lunch and water would be provided for all volunteers. Call 307-287-0129 or 602-510-0299 to RSVP.

After the work is done, the federation hosts "Pint Night" beginning at 6 p.m. at the Coalter Loft in Lander.

"Join WWF for a pint of beer and people who care about our wild lands and critters," Barbknecht said.

The Wyoming Wildlife Federation is a non-profit organization committed to protecting hunting, angling, outdoor recreation and wildlife.
