Event Category: National Public Lands Day
Date of Event: September 28, 2013 (Saturday)
Time of Event: 7:45AM to 11AM and 12PM to 3PM
Event Site: Desert NWR: Corn Creek Field Station
Event Description: Spend a glorious day in the wide open spaces giving back on public lands. Not your run-of-the-mill clean-up, volunteers in this event will deconstruct and remove an unsightly and now unnecessary fence installed in the 60’s near Corn Creek Road. Participants will remove and coil lengths of barbed wire and use t-post pullers to prepare materials for recycling. Individuals need to be in fairly good physical condition as fence removal requires the ability to bend, stoop, kneel, and get a little dirty. Plan to be outside in warm, sunny conditions with no shade – a hat and sunscreen are recommended. Adult work gloves, water, snacks, and a good time will be provided.
