Allocations and Projects

CHAPTER ALLOCATES $94,807 IN 2017

$5,000 to the Little Mountain Aspen Stand Exclosures. What was once a very healthy mature aspen stand is now practicely removed off the landscape. By placing a large steel jack fence surrounding the small current amount of young aspen, it will prevent large game species, cattle, and feral horses from entering the aspen stand and allow the stand to grow to a mature height. Then the fence can be removed to another aspen stand location.
