ARIZONA ANTELOPE FOUNDATION
Government Prairie/Fence Modification Project
AUGUST 10th, 2019
Project Location: We will be working 17 miles west of Flagstaff and 12 miles south of Interstate 40 in the Garland Prairie area.
Project Begins: Saturday August 10th, please arrive at camp by 8:00 AM. This is a one-day project for all attendees.
Project Activity: We will be completely removing and modifying fencing to pronghorn friendly standards in various locations around Garland Prairie.
Pronghorn Benefits: This fence project will improve pronghorn movements across their summer range on Garland Prairie. Data from currently collared pronghorn was 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 2019 AAF-AGFD North and South of I-40 Pronghorn Corridor Connectivity Project.
What to Bring: Work gloves (The AAF will have a limited supply), snacks, water and personal gear.
Meals: Please provide your own lunches to eat in the field on the Saturday work days. The AAF will be providing dinners on Friday and Saturday nights and continental breakfasts with coffee and juice on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
