Cedar Mountain Wilderness Service Project II

September 12

 


The Work

We will be building and installing buck and rail fencing at the mouth of (2) canyons, each of which contain vulnerable natural springs, to ensure prevention of motorized travel into these areas and resultant impacts on the ecological health of the landscape.

Work tasks will vary by need, and are slated to include:

  • installation of buck and rail fencing at mouth of canyons to protect spring sites;
  • loading and carrying needed materials and tools to site;
  • sign installation

Our Objective: To establish infrastructure designed to prevent illegal motorized travel into the sensitive canyons and near the fragile springs in the Cedar Mountain Wilderness.

A comprehensive itinerary will be provided to registered volunteers.

  • Wednesday, Sept 11th: Optional Campout
  • Thursday, Sept 12th: Gather at 8:00am for orientation.
