Brush Creek Valley Ranch Barbed Wire Pull – November 12
Brush Creek Valley Ranch is a beautiful and easily accessible open space. The ranch still has many miles of barbed wire fencing however, which can be harmful to local wildlife populations, including elk and deer. Barbed wire is particularly prevalent in the Salt Creek area of the property.
We are grateful to Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, who are hosting this barbed wire pull to help clean up critical wildlife habitat. Volunteers will assist in removing barbed wire fencing, then coiling to be disposed. This is not easy work but it is necessary! See details and how to sign up below.
When: Saturday, November 12, 2022 from 9:00am to 3:00pm
Where: Brush Creek Valley Ranch and Open Space
Bring: We will be encountering unpredictable weather and conditions in the field. Those interested should come prepared to spend 4+ hours outside with sun protection, water, proper layers for Colorado weather, and sturdy hiking/working boots. Although we love dogs, they can have an impact, especially for wildlife. Please leave your furry friends at home. Since we will be dealing with barbed wire, we advise that you wear long sleeves and bring work gloves.
Weather: This project is weather-dependent, please check your email on the day of the hike for information if there is inclement weather.
