conservation prickly pear wsa closure - May 14, 2016

This spring we are going to try again to move the Mexican Mountain Wilderness Study Area closure at Prickly Pear Flat to a more effective location. We've been rained out a couple of times but the third time is the charm. We will be working with the BLM Price Field Office to tear down the current barrier and rebuild it where it will stop vehicle trespass into the WSA. Expect light to moderate manual labor as a buck and rail fence is dismantled and moved. We will dry camp near the barricade so bring water as well as food for the weekend. Access to the campsite is on good quality dirt roads. There are lots of opportunities for hikes after work including one to a nice petroglyph panel. The world famous Buckhorn Wash panel is less than 30 minutes away by car. You can enjoy superb views into the center of the Swell. Plan on driving down Friday, it will take around 3 hours, and returning Sunday late afternoon. Bring work clothes and gloves.
