The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will contact landowners to coordinate replacement of fences lost to the wildfires on agency lands in northwest Nebraska.
Game and Parks follows Nebraska fencing law and works with neighboring landowners to replace and repair fences.
“Staff managing wildlife and park lands will be contacting neighbors to identify priority fences for replacement for pastures they will be trying to graze early next year,” said Tim McCoy, Game and Parks deputy director. “We also will be flexible with the use of contractors, work agreements and other tools to work with our neighbors to replace fences.”
Game and Parks also is exploring additional measures that can be taken to assist wildlife and the local area in the recovery effort.
