Fence Removal for Wildlife Safety - National Public Lands Day

Join us in creating a safe and sustainable ecosystem by removing old barbed wire fence. Volunteers will remove barbed wire from t-posts, roll up the wire, remove t-posts from the ground, & stack materials in a designated area for staff to retrieve later. All metal collected will be recycled.

Volunteers will work down the fence line removing the barbed wire and making piles of the materials. Volunteers will be using fence pliers & t-post pullers; will need to be able to bend, squat, stoop, & squeeze. Moderate physical level.

Volunteers will need to bring:
Sun protection (sunglasses, hat, sunscreen)
Work gloves (some will be provided)
Wear closed-toe shoes & long pants - will be working in tall grass
Water & re-fillable water bottle
Insect repellant
Snacks
Clothing appropriate for the weather
Backpack (to carry it all)
