Fuels Reduction

Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park

The Nez Perce cabin that sits nestled in the lodgepole forest near Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park now has a fighting chance to withstand a wildfire as a result of some hard work by the Montana Conservation Corps (MCC) and Yellowstone firefighters. The MCC completed a fuels reduction project around the cabin in 2008.  The project was a great partnership that provided meaningful work for the MCC members and an opportunity for the NPS staff to work alongside potential future employees.  Many MCC alumni go on to work with national parks and the national forest service.
