The season is flying by! As week four came to a close the reality that the summer work season is nearly complete has started to sink in.
The Timber Tigers and Baller Bobcats spent the week working with Tami, a PCTA volunteer, on her section of the trail north of Stevenson. During the week the crews cleared drains, cleaned off turnpikes, removed rockslides, along with the usual tread work and brushing.
Across the county, the Trail Busters and Daisy Chain Gang added to the an already impressive amount of white pine trees that have been pruned by FYS crews this summer. After completing a unit the crews took a quick trip to the natural bridges near Peterson Prairie before heading back to the WREC.
Special guest Karen Douglass, SCSD Superintendent, paid the program a visit on Tuesday to see what her students are up to this summer. We are proud to have 21 SHS students participating in the program this year.
On Friday, Steve and Orlanda from Willard and Spring Creek National Fish Hatcheries guided the crews in some hands on learning aka salmon dissections! This is always one of the favorite classes and this year was no exception.
Thank you to Tami, Steve, and Orlanda for making week four of FYS a memorable and fun experience.
