And Now We Begin
Member orientation is complete! After one slow, but informative week in the classroom, all the crews headed out to Bastrop State Park for a week of hands on training. After chainsaw training, trail work overview, and a lot of bonding, the crews will head straight into projects and spikes. Check out our Current Projects page to see where the crews will be working!
