Summer of Sheldon Part One

Over 30 volunteers came out to Badger Campground in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge to pull fence that was blocking antelope migratory routes and wildlife water access.

Friends of Nevada Wilderness teamed up with the Oregon Natural Desert Association to take out almost four miles of fence in five hours - most of the fence had five strands of wire - that's a total of 20 miles rolled and bundled!

After their hard work, the team was treated to bowls of Dutch oven Jambalaya, a hearty stew prepared by Sheena Britschgi.

Thanks again for all your hardwork - the antelope appreciate it!
