From the field:
“The crew had a great attitude and great supervision from SCC. They assisted with a prescribed fire on their first day. Thinning, piling and fence removal required very little input from USFS personnel. We pointed them in the right direction and they got it done. Their assistance on the Brockover Prescribed Fire was greatly appreciated. They filled an essential role in our organization!"

-Fred Ellis, San Juan National Forest
