Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Volunteers needed for wildlife habitat improvement project near Flagstaff

If you're looking for a great opportunity to get outdoors and help enhance wildlife habitat, join us on Saturday, Aug. 17, for a special volunteer project north of Flagstaff.

The Arizona Antelope Foundation (AAF), in cooperation with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, will be working in the Sacred Mountain and Wupatki area of the Coconino National Forest and on an Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) right-of-way adjacent to Highway 89.

Volunteers will remove old right-of-way fencing along Highway 89 and modify nearby pasture fences. Research studies have shown these actions will increase pronghorn movement between the west and east sides of the highway and will improve opportunities for local pronghorn to get water, forage and improve genetic diversity.

This is a one-day work project that will meet at camp at 8 a.m. on Aug. 17. Bring work gloves (AAF will have a limited supply), snacks, water and personal gear.

Please provide your own lunch to eat while out in the field that day. The Arizona Antelope Foundation will provide dinner to all volunteers on Saturday evening.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to info@azantelope.org by Aug. 9. For more information on the project, contact Glen Dickens at (520) 247-4907.
