Event description

Description

National parks provide refuge for much of our nation’s wildlife. However, many species of wildlife need to migrate beyond park borders to reach important habitat in order to thrive.

For centuries, Yellowstone’s pronghorn have migrated from summer habitat inside the park to critical wintering grounds north of the park. Unfortunately, over the last half-century, development and increased fencing along this critical migration route have impacted the long-term survival of this iconic herd. Unlike elk, pronghorn do not readily jump and often turn back when confronted with fences. However, pronghorn pass easily under altered fences.

Through its pronghorn program, NPCA works to re-establish winter migration habitat for Yellowstone’s pronghorn antelope. Since 2010, NPCA has been working with private landowners, public land managers, and hundreds of volunteers to remove or modify fences that once restricted pronghorn migration, allowing this species to thrive again.

Join NPCA for a presentation about our work to restore this ancient migration route and learn how you can get involved. Light refreshments will be provided.
