Greetings,

  • Crews comprised of six youth, 17 to 24 years of age.
  • Near full-time employment for seven consecutive weeks working outdoor USFS field survey techniques practiced by agency scientists. Activities range from pre-restoration assessments, timber stand examinations, botanical surveys, and backcountry surveys.
