Sheldon Fence Crew 2012: Up and Running!

The 2012 Sheldon Fence Crew - from left: Paul Wood, Evan Lantto, Allen Gibson, and crew leader John Coleman - have begun their three-month stay on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge. The crew will be pulling barbed wire fence full-time this summer and living in a cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. (photo by Brian Beffort)
