Fence Project Planned for Northern Boundary of Pecos National Historical Park

Pecos, NM:  Beginning this week, Pecos National Historical Park staff along with an American Sign Language crew from the Rocky Mountain Youth Corps will begin work on 6,000 feet of fence line along the northern boundary of the park. Crews will be repairing and stabilizing sections of fence, freeing fence line of vegetation, and replacing it with wildlife-friendly fence. Park property boundaries will also be clearly demarcated.

The public can expect to see work crews along the northern boundary of Pecos National Historical Park from the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Posse-Pecos Division Rodeo Grounds all the way out to Glorieta Creek and Old Denver Highway.  Work will take place July 7th through July 28th and then again from August 31st through September 28th.
