Wed May 29 09:06:00 MDT 2013

Fish, Wildlife and Parks is looking for volunteers for its annual Dome Mountain Clean-Up Day cosponsored by the Park County Rod and Gun Club on June 8. Volunteers will be cleaning up and removing remnants of old fencing that are dangerous to wildlife on this important elk winter range.


WHERE: Meet at Dailey Lake

DATE:  June 8, 2013

TIME:   10:00 a.m.


Volunteers should contact Laida Talcott prior to June 8 at or (503) 449-1508. Fencing pliers and t-post pullers would be very helpful, as well as possibly additional ATV’s. Volunteers who might have any of the items mentioned, and are willing to bring them along on June 8, should let Laida Talcott know. Free food and beverages will be provided.


The Dome Mountain Wildlife Management Area is over 4,500 acres of public land, owned by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. It was purchased in the late 1980’s in order to preserve elk winter range and provide hunting and recreational opportunity for the public. Old fencing remains in some areas since prior to public acquisition, and each year causes injuries or death to elk and other wildlife that become entangled.
