Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is looking for volunteers for its annual Dome Mountain Clean-Up Day on Saturday, co-sponsored by the Park County Rod and Gun Club.
Volunteers will be cleaning up and removing remnants of old fencing that are dangerous to wildlife on this elk winter range.
Volunteers should contact area biologist Karen Loveless at email@example.com or 406-333-4211 if interested. Fencing pliers and t-post pullers would be helpful, as well as additional ATVs. Free food and beverages will be provided.
Participants should meet at the north parking area at Dailey Lake at 9 a.m.
The Dome Mountain Wildlife Management Area is more than 4,500 acres of public land owned by Montana FWP. It was purchased in the late 1980s in order to preserve elk winter range and provide hunting and recreational opportunity for the public. Old fencing remains in some areas since before public acquisition, and each year causes injuries or death to elk and other wildlife that become entangled.
