ARIZONA ANTELOPE FOUNDATION

 

Arizona Antelope Foundation
Highway 89
Fence Modification
August 17, 2013

 

Project Location: We will be working in the Sacred Mountain and Wupatki area of the USFS and on an ADOT right-of-way adjacent to highway 89 north of Flagstaff.

Project Begins: Saturday August 17th. Meet at camp at 8:00 AM. This is a one day project for all attendees.

Project Activity: We will be removing up to 4 miles of old right of way fence along 89 and modifying nearby pasture fences.

Pronghorn Benefits: This fence project will move the existing ROW fence in the Sacred Mountain and Wupatki areas back from Hwy 89 on both sides for about 100 yards. Research studies have shown this action will increase pronghorn movement between the west and east sides of HW 89 and will improve opportunities for local pronghorn to get water, forage and improve genetic diversity.  

HPC Grant Benefits: All volunteer work hours and mileage will be use as in-kind match for an approved and funded 2013 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 SATURDAY EVENING FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS

What to Bring: Workgloves (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 Friday August 9th so we can plan to have enough food and tools.
