NH Corps crews use traditional trail skills, restoration techniques, carpentry skills, and physical labor to complete an array of projects while camping for the duration of each project period. Locations for these service projects vary from frontcountry campgrounds to backcountry sites in the White Mountain National Forest and Great North Woods.
