You will serve as a member of the crew; perform heavy manual labor, and complete conservation projects using a variety of manual and power tools. You will also participate in environmental education activities.

Projects include hazardous fuels reduction, corridor clearing, habitat restoration and fencing, re-vegetation and local environmental service projects. Crews may also complete technical and/or specialized projects depending on project partner needs, including disaster relief if the opportunity arises.
