BAGGS — Groups planning to convert a fence that lies in the path of migrating deer and elk are seeking volunteers to help with the project on Saturday and Sunday.

The University of Wyoming, Wyoming Game and Fish Department and other conservation groups are partnering to help big game migration near Baggs. They will remove an old barbed-wire fence and replace it with a wildlife-friendly fence at the WGFD Red-Rim Grizzly habitat management area.

Pat Rodgers with the UW Wyoming Migration Initiative is the coordinator and contact person for the project. People interested in helping can call or text Rodgers at 307-797-2680 or email

Four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is recommended. Volunteers will be fed dinner around 4-5 p.m. Saturday and lunch around noon Sunday. People can help one or both days for as short or as long as desired. Additional details are available at
