Beaver Creek Campground Fence Project

On April 16, 2016--prior to the annual MVBCH Spring Ride--the Methow Valley chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of Washington partnered with the Washington State Fish & Wildlife Service to build a pole fence. The fence was constructed along Beaver Creek to prevent horses, mules, and campers from damaging the creek bed and disrupting fish habitat. The project was done in exchange for Permit Fees necessary to use the campground for the chapter's annual Spring Ride.
Twelve MVBCH members volunteered on April 16th and five members volunteered during a second work party on April 23rd, resulting in 75 volunteer work hours to complete the project.
