In Partnership With:
GRAND CANYON TRUST
Kane Ranch, Buffalo and North Canyon Pastures/Fence Removal

Project Location:  We will be working in House Rock Valley on the Kane Ranch USFS/BLM allotments between the Buffalo and North Canyon pastures in northeast Arizona, east of the Kaibab Plateau and south of the Paria Plateau/Vermillion Cliffs. 

Project Begins: Saturday, May 20th.  Meet at camp at 8:00 AM.  This is a one day project. Camp sites are available all day Friday the 19th

Project Activity: We will be modifying approximately 3 miles of old fence by removing and rolling up the wire and cutting off wooden fence posts.

Pronghorn Benefits: This project will help ensure that pronghorn have unimpeded seasonal access to the eastern slope of the Kaibab Plateau. It will assist towards completion of the Grand Canyon Trusts’ overall pronghorn fence modification/removal plan in the House Rock Valley.  

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

Meals: Friday night dinner will be provided by the AAF and Saturday night dinner and  breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast will be provided by our hosts, the Grand Canyon Trust.

Directions to Camp:   AAF project/camp site will be at the historic Kane Ranch Headquarters 10 miles south of HW 89A on the House Rock Wildlife Area ranch road. Allow for at least 3.5 hours for travel from Flagstaff and 6 hours from Phoenix.

From Flagstaff take HW 89 north towards Page. Travel 105 miles to the intersection of 89/89A, Turn left on 89A, drive 14.5 miles to Marble Canyon/Lees Ferry, (last reliable gas station until Kanab). Proceed north (you will be headed west) on 89/A for 23 miles, turn south on the “House Rock Wildlife Area” Road. This turn off is marked by a large wooden/log sign and will have AAF signage on the roadway. Proceed south for 10 miles, Kane Ranch is located adjacent to the west side of the road where it nears the plateau proper. There is a sign on the right.
