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.
