Teal Team Six again brought destruction on a mighty scale to the fallen logs which selfishly plagued the trails like plaque in your arteries.


Dry Cottonwood Creek Restoration

The Cutthroat Trout long to return to swim up this creek to spawn new life, a cycle they had once known before the rancher’s cattle had stamped out the creek, cutting off their path.

A challenging week lay ahead of the Glacier Crew on Week 3 as we built trail in the Mt. Brown burn area.


Major Blowout

  • Posted by George Curtis

After clearing the blowout, which also necessitated the construction of a rock wall, possibly the world’s largest waterbar, and plenty of elbow grease, we moved on to the next portion of the trail. This largely involved retread and building check-steps.

The sun beamed down as snow fell from the sparse clouds laid out in the mostly blue sky. “Welcome to the mountains!”


Delightful Journeys

Everything we did this month was unlike any experience any of us have ever had, and in between all of the learning and spotting knapweed and houndstongue we did a LOT of laughing, growing, and exploring.

After a disappointing cancellation of a long-planned trip into Spotted Bear in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, a new project arose: a trip into the Payette National Forest in Idaho to spray noxious weeds. Plans can change.

“Most everyone would look around here and think that all of the trees are dead. I see that there is still life in these trees, and know they have a story to tell.”

This exhausting 14 day hitch was sweetened by good company and beautiful natural areas. Next up on our to do list – take some time off, rest our bodies, and look forward to the next hitch.

As expected, our hitch in the Salmon-Challis National Forest was nothing short of eventful.
The first few days were dedicated to herbicide application training with the Forest Service, while the rest of our time was spent on Alderspring Ranch, run by our project partners Glenn and Caryl Elzinga. Alderspring is located on national forest land in the remote Pahsimeroi Valley, and is home to one of the largest grass-fed organic beef operations in the world.

Being a part of a conservation corps crew is an experience that can be hard to express, especially to someone who hasn’t done something like this.

On our first backcountry hitch, we were blessed with the opportunity to Glamp (Glorified Camping, in the common speech) by using a NPS Ranger Cabin.
