Our program integrates team-based work projects, education, and on-site vocational training into an experience that prioritizes personal development and conservation work skills. The position is challenging. Participants work on physically demanding conservation projects in all kinds of weather. Our program is a highly structured immersive experience, in an environment that does not allow for much independent time away from the crew, time in civilization, or access to electrical power.

Participants engage in many group activities each day to help the crew function, including meal prep, water treatment, and tool maintenance, followed by a family-style dinner and formal educational sessions. Participants are actively mentored and empowered by their leader and expected to take on increasing leadership roles within the crew, including acting as a leader of the day/week by the end of the program. Through these challenging and rewarding experiences, our programs consistently help members become resilient, disciplined, empathetic and strong. A high value is placed upon interpersonal dynamics and the development of robust workplace skillsets. The Silviculture Crew will camp and work in the Payette National Forest placing flagging identification tags around proposed non-commercial thinning units. The crew will use mapping programs including GPS, ArcGIS, and Avenza to locate and map proposed units. The crew will navigate forest service roads and hike through remote, rough terrain. Training/Professional Development: Participants are provided a comprehensive training which, depending on your crews projects may cover the following topics: USDA Chainsaw/Crosscut operation and maintenance ICC Leadership Philosophy Basic Trail maintenance and Construction Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Crew Management and Motivation Risk Management and Safety Procedures Conservation Education Tool Use and Maintenance Duties and Responsibilities: Work Project Participation Crew Members will be part of a three to four-person crew led by one staff member.

Each crew will have a project specialty and will receive training and certification appropriate to that theme. Development & Education: - Crew Members participate in informal and formal educational discussions. An Individual Development Plan will be created by each member to foster self-improvement and reflection throughout the program. Participants will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials. Required Qualifications: Desire to learn and grow Ability to lift 50 lbs., hike several miles, and be on foot for 8-10 hours per day 19+ years old High School Diploma, GED Excellent judgment Positive mental attitude, flexibility and commitment to success Ability to, give and take feedback Ability to pass a criminal history background check Hours: Though schedules can vary, most crews will work a 9 day on5 day off schedule conducting project work Tuesday through the following Wednesday throughout their 9-week experience.
