The Santa Fe National Forest Crew #2 will be working throughout the Forest, completing a variety of trail maintenance projects. The work is expected to include a couple of hitches in wilderness areas, improvements to a motorcycle trail, some cross-cut sawing, and a whole lot of fun.
The crew is comprised of four members and a project leader, and will be working in Santa Fe for fifteen weeks. Members receive training in trail work skills and Wilderness First Aid before heading to Santa Fe. Members will also receive training in Leave No Trace and learn more about the Southwest.
Much of the Forest is dry, though not quite a desert, and mountainous, with vegetation varying with elevation and direction (slopes facing west tend to be wetter than slopes facing east, slopes facing south get more sun than those facing north).
