#Activate10: Fence pulling for a cause

Our community is large and wildly diverse, which is at the same time our strength and our weakness. #Activate10 is a movement seeking to increase communication between individuals and organizations across Fremont County and to promote positive action in our communities.

Wyoming Wildlife Federation, Shoshone National Forest, and the Red Canyon Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation have organized a volunteer-driven fence removal project in the Wind River Range on Saturday, July 25th at 9:00 am. The meeting place is about 17 miles west of Dubois at the base of Forest Road 532 off of Warm Springs Road.

Those interested in helping are asked to let Sam Lockwood with the Wyoming Wildlife Federation know by emailing [email protected] or by calling 435-729-0951.


Removing old barbed wire fencing from these public lands will stop entanglement issues impacting migrating wildlife such as deer and elk, shared Jaden Bales, of the Wyoming Wildlife Federation.

More information can be found on the flyer below or on the Wyoming Wildlife Federation website.
