The first phase of the project took place in late June this past summer. Crews removed the old fencing, much of it used by homesteaders to hold livestock, from Wapshilla Ridge to free up key travel corridors for elk and other big game. They also repaired a small section of fencing to help exclude illegal off-road use and trespassing cattle, built a cattle enclosure around a wildlife guzzler, and carried out mapping and inventory of fence line that needs to be removed in the future. An IFG crew completed phase two of the project in August. In all, workers removed two tons of material.
