Fence project seeks volunteers this Saturday

(Jackson, Wyo.) -- Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation will partner with Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve (LSR)/Grand Teton National Park to remove buck and rail fencing in the LSR area to allow for greater wildlife permeability. Volunteers are needed for this important fence project. The project has moderately difficult component (5 on a 1-10 scale). Morning half-day participation is also welcome. All tools and safety equipment are provided. Since parking is limited at the work site with private access, and they want to minimize our impact, they must have all the volunteers meet at one of two carpool sites. The first is at Stilson parking lot at 8:30 a.m. The 2nd is at Granite Trailhead at 8:50 a.m. They will consolidate cars and carpool to the project site by 9 a.m. They plan to work until 2:00 p.m. Also, a half-day morning shift is also welcome. Please arrive to the carpool location on time. The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation asks volunteers to please bring their own water bottle or hydration packs. They will provide water and Gatorade to fill bottles and snacks. Additionally, they will take a mid-day lunch break; please bring your own lunch. You should wear layered clothes, long pants, sturdy shoes, and bring a hat and a rain jacket in case of storms. Sun or eyeglasses are a MUST for working with fencing. They also recommend that volunteers check the status of their tetanus shots, in case of scratches from the old fencing material. They will provide work gloves and tools. Please RSVP to jhwffencepull@gmail.com if you plan to attend. Let us know which carpool site you prefer. *Feature Photo: h/t Jon Mobeck / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
