    • Vekol Valley

    Project Location:  We will be working on BLM lands approximately 4 miles south of Interstate 8,  at the Vekol Valley Exit at Mile Marker 144,  miles southwest  of Casa Grande, AZ.

    Project Begins:  Saturday, January 19th.  Please meet at camp not later than 8:00AM.  This is a one-day project. Due to the road conditions we will be carpooling to the worksite in 4X4’s only.  If you arrive after 8:00 AM you will be unable to drive individually to the worksite. Friday we can use up to 6 to 8  folks to help remove brush on the road to the worksite. If you can work on Friday please arrive by noon. It should take about 2-3 hours to do the necessary brush clearing along the travel route .

    Project Activity:  We will be removing two segments of  4 strand barbed wire fence; 1.5 miles and 1 mile respectively as well as a wire holding corral.

    Pronghorn Benefits:  This effort is located on the eastern boundary of historic endangered Sonoran Pronghorn habitat and near a proposed new release site. The BLM has a long-term plan of removing up to 54 miles of un-needed livestock fence in this zone as to make it more attractive to Sonoran Pronghorn. This is the first of multiple fence removal projects in this zone.

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

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

    WEATHER CAUTION/WARNING; If you are planning on attending and have RSVP’d by email please check your email on Thursday January 17th for a possible cancellation notice due to rainfall. We will be unable to access the project work sites due to the multiple washes we must cross if we receive significant rainfall prior to or during the project weekend.
