Description:

During this 30 week program, Field Crew Members will serve in the field on “hitch” crews of their peers for periods of 11 days (10 service days with 1 day off). Hitches consist of high priority conservation projects with a focus on public lands access, visitor experience and safety, and recreation site protection such as erosion control and revegetation. 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.
