Northeastern Region – Summer Field Tour

June 22 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Please set aside Wednesday, June 22, 2022 for our annual field trip.  We will be traveling to the Tabby Mountain WMA near Fruitland, UT in Duchesne County.  We will be visiting a large WMA owned by the State of Utah and managed for large ungulate herds and other wildlife.  Our primary goal is to talk about landscape resilience to climate change and other abrupt catastrophic events.  We will also practice building some low cost, low tech, hand built structures for restoring and creating resilience for degraded meadows and drainages in sagebrush rangelands.

Please bring appropriate outdoor clothing and sun protection such as: boots or sturdy shoes, hat, sunscreen, work gloves, long sleeves recommended, sunglasses, insect repellant, and whatever other fieldwork accessory you are accustomed to bring/wear.  Lunch will be provided after our work exercise.

We will meet at 9:00 am at the rest stop about 1/2 mile east of the the Hwy 40 and Hwy 208 junction

We will enter the WMA from the east and exit it on the west side and into Fruitland.  There will be no bathroom facilities on the mountain.  Your last (civilized) bathroom stop will be at the rest stop where the tour will begin from, please plan accordingly.

PLEASE RSVP to me ASAP if you are going to attend so we can have a head count and plan for lunch.
