Government Prairie Fence Modification
August 12, 2017

Project Location:  We will be working 17 miles west of Flagstaff and 11 miles north of Interstate 40 in the Spring Valley/Government Prairie area.

Project Begins: Saturday August 12th, please arrive at camp by 8:00 AM.  This is a one day project for all attendees.

Project Activity: We will be removing fencing around a wildlife water and modifying fencing to pronghorn friendly standards in various locations.

Pronghorn Benefits: This fence project will improve an existing pronghorn movement corridor from their summer range on Government Prairie to winter habitat in the Ida and Babbitt grasslands to the north. Data from currently collared pronghorn is used to identify key areas for modification.

HPC Grant Benefits:  All volunteer work hours and mileage will be used as in-kind match for an approved and funded 2017 AAF-AGFD North of I-40 Pronghorn Corridor Connectivity Project.

Meals: Please provide your own lunch to eat in the field on Saturday.  The AAF will provide dinner for all volunteers on Friday and Saturday nights and continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

What to Bring: Work gloves (The AAF will have a limited supply), snacks, water, personal gear.

Contact: Glen Dickens at (520-247-4907) for project information. 

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to info@azantelope.org by Tuesday August  8th so we can plan to have enough food and tools.
