Our mission is to increase pronghorn populations in Arizona through habitat improvements, habitat acquisition, the translocation of animals to historic range, and public comment on activities affecting pronghorn and their habitat.  As a 501c3 nonprofit, all of our proceeds help advance our mission.

ARIZONA ANTELOPE FOUNDATION

Williams—US 89 Fence Removal

AUGUST 6, 2022

Project Location:  We will be working approximately 2 miles south of Ash Fork removing an ADOT right-of-way fence adjacent to US 89. The project location is between mileposts 358.4 and 362.

Project Begins: Saturday, August 6, 2022. Please be at camp by 8:00 AM.  This is a one-day project for all attendees.

Project Activity: We will be removing approximately 3 miles of US 89 right-of-way fence.

Pronghorn Benefits: This fence project includes two areas where the existing ROW fence has been pulled back from US 89 on both sides of the roadway. Pronghorn GPS data has identified US 89 as a barrier to pronghorn movement and studies have shown that pulling back the ROW fence may reestablish this pronghorn migration corridor.

What to Bring: Work gloves (The AAF will have a limited supply), sunscreen, snacks, water, personal gear and orange safety vest (if you have one, otherwise one will be provided).

Meals: Please provide your own lunches 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.

Contact: Please register online by Monday August 1st so we can plan to have enough food and tools for everyone.  You may also RSVP to info@azantelope.org or call 480-702-1045.
