A Nevada Conservation Corps crew recently completed a series of resource protection and visitor enhancement projects at Bird Creek Campground and within the Current-Ellison Watershed Restoration Project area of Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. Work included reconstruction of boundary fences around the campground and within the Current-Ellison Watershed Restoration Project area.
The crew was able to replace nearly 4000 ft. of the fencing surrounding the campground. This included installing to a set of design parameters for the H-braces and cutting and splicing of both barbed and smooth wire. The crew was able to get all of the old fencing, rusted wire and fasteners to the road where it was loaded by the Forest Service and taken in for recycling.
This collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service is part of an ongoing effort to create fulfilling and sustainable recreational opportunities in our parks. For more information about Bird Creek Campground, click HERE.
