Project Leader: Tyler Kimble Project Dates: April 19 - September 12 Members Arrive June 2
We are lucky enough to have the privilege of working in a beautiful area of the Northwest called the Umatilla National Forest, which takes its name from the Indian word meaning "water rippling over sand." The whole forest encompasses 1.4 million acres, but the section our crew will be working in, the North Fork of the Umatilla Wilderness in the Walla Walla District, makes up 20,144 of those acres. Beginning in June, we will start our 16 weeks of service, clearing and maintaining backcountry trails as well as fulfilling other various conservation projects as needed. Be sure to check back throughout the summer to hear more about the exciting work we will have accomplished!
