    (Lander, WY) – Want to make a lasting impact for local deer, pronghorn, sage-grouse and elk? Join the Red Canyon Chapter of RMEF, Wyoming Wildlife Federation, and Lander BLM Office to remove obsolete fences in wildlife habitat on June 8, 2024. This section of Beaver Rim hosts a year-round elk population, mule deer, and pronghorn, and is a main thorofare for the Twin Creek Sage-grouse population.

    Volunteers will meet at 8 am at the gravel pit on Beaver Rim approximately 30 miles southeast of Lander on Highway 287. Volunteers should bring fencing pliers, work gloves, rain gear, sun protection, and water bottles. Extra supplies will be provided on-site, including lunch, additional water, and snacks.

    Removing these obsolete fences will provide a lot of help for animals getting around the landscape, both in summer and during critical times of year when the snow is deep.
