June 1 - Aug. 19, 2018 | Invisible Boundaries: Exploring Yellowstone's Great Animal Migrations

This unique exhibit at the National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA) combines artwork and natural history by examining the migrations of local ungulates such as elk, pronghorn, and deer. Stunning photographs, paintings, videos, and an amazing interactive map are included. These media come together to chronicle the difficult journeys herd animals face every year. Contributors include Wildlife Ecologist Arthur Middleton, Photographer Joe Riis, Artist James Prosek, and Filmmaker Jenny Nichols. The title comes from the idea that these migratory animals cross many “Invisible Boundaries,” including lines between national park and wilderness areas, public and private lands, and neighboring states and countries. This exhibit encourages guests to think about the complexities of wildlife and land conservation. Learn more at the NMWA website.

July 28, 2018 | Wildlife Friendlier Fencing Project in Buffalo Valley

Volunteer Opportunity Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 9am – 2pm

Join us for our next fence project in Buffalo Valley. We’re teaming up with the Blackrock Ranger District staff to remove old dilapidated fence from adjacent to the Buffalo Valley Road. This fencing is associated with the old “Atkinson Pasture” and is no longer needed–and is simply in the way of wildlife at this point.

We will remove all old wooden buck and rails from the BTNF/GTNP boundary (close to Highway 26/287) that fronts the Buffalo Valley Road on its south side up to the Heart 6 boundary south of the Buffalo Valley Road. This will mean cutting, removing spikes to pack out, and making some tidy burn piles for the wood to be burnt later this fall when it is safe.

Please RSVP to jhwffencepull@gmail.com if you plan to attend or if you have questions about whether this is a good project for you.
