Elk NetworkVolunteers Clear the Way for Wyoming Wildlife

General | July 31, 2020

Volunteers from Idaho, Utah and Wyoming removed 1.25 miles of old fencing clearing the way for wildlife to more freely pass through Togwotee Pass in northwest Wyoming. The gathering is a team effort dating back a decade.

“It’s hard to believe for us, but this is the tenth year in a row working with Bob Joslin and the Red Canyon Chapter of the RMEF to facilitate a Shoshone National Forest habitat project,” Joy Bannon, Wyoming Wildlife Federation policy director, told Buckrail. “We are really looking forward to keeping this volunteer day going into future years.”

Biologists indicate mule deer use the area as a migration corridor.
