October Volunteer Opportunities
Wildlife Friendly Fence Day
Saturday 10/7 10am - 4pm
Join MPG as we work to make our shared borders friendlier to wildlife. Volunteers will remove barbed top and bottom strands of wire and replace them with smooth-strand fence and drop clips allowing the fence to be compressed when not in use. This project will greatly reduce the potential for injury to wildlife as they cross between properties. It is an exciting partnership between MPG and Red Quill Ranch. Lunch and tools will be provided. No experience necessary. Please RSVP for details and directions.
