PARK CITY, Utah — Mountain Trails Foundation (MTF), Park City Municipal (PCM), and Utah Open Lands are coming together to build a buck and rail fence in Bonanza Flat on August 18, 26, and 27. They are calling on volunteers to help with the transportation of materials and the fencing installation.
Each restoration work day will last from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., with an initial meeting location at Bonanza Flat Trailhead.
The Bonanza Flat Conservation Area encompasses 1,534 acres, including part seven hiking trails, such as Bloods Lake Trail. Since being purchased by Park City Municipal and Utah Open Lands in 2017, an adaptive management and stewardship plan was adopted in 2019. The need for buck and rail fencing is called for in areas where encroachment from neighboring properties occurs under the program.
Volunteers can RSVP for the event by email and are encouraged to bring work gloves, long pants, closed-toe shoes, water, snacks, sun protection, and an extra layer of clothing.
