Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Public Lands Day 2019
- Instructor Friends of Cascade-Siskiyou NM
This year, we will be working to remove fencing on boundary lands between Sky King Cole and the Monument in the Pilot Rock area. Sky King Cole is a beautiful 1312-acre private property conserved with a conservation easement held by SOLC. The fencing was first installed by the owners to keep out open range cattle. Now that the cattle have been removed as a part of the long-term restoration of the area, the fencing no longer serves a purpose and is a hazard to wildlife. By removing this fencing, we will free up the movement and migration of the animals that call the Monument home. Please note that this event will involve some challenging physical labor and that we will be working with barbed wire. Please come prepared. It is strongly recommended that participants check that they are up to date on their tetanus shots prior to the event. It is also important to note that some teams will be working on steep slopes and in very shrubby areas. We will be working rain or shine!
