ACE AmeriCorps Ranger Intern, Kevin Farrands, along with the help of a SCC crew, did more than just conserve, restore, and protect our desert land, they also rescued two dogs found abandoned in the desert, extremely dehydrated and hungry! After providing them with food and water, the two friendly pups happily hung out with the team for the day while they finished their project and then were brought to a no kill shelter in Tucson, AZ. The (grateful) conservation canines were appropriately named "ACE" and "Meri" (AmeriCorps)!

YEP - Youth Employment in Parks


 


Vermont Youth Conservation CorpsA new technique in the east, this project involves installing “toe wood” at the bottom of the bank (burying large woody debris perpendicular to the river flow, root ends exposed), which is implemented by the contractor in an excavator. Above the toe wood, jute-fabric soil lifts are installed to stabilize erosive soils. The fabric is secured with native willow stakes. Voila: riverbank stabilization. Notably, this location was severely damaged by tropical storm Irene.
