USA —  Each year The Family YMCA sponsors a Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) trail crew through a New Mexico YCC grant program that benefits both Los Alamos County and Forest Service area trails. Under the terms of the grant, the Y’s crew members are selected from the Española, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Pojoaque and Sandoval County areas.

On July 13, during the Forest Service’s Public Lands Day, the Y’s crew members receive special training and educational opportunities as part of their summer job. The training was an introduction to the annual Introduction to Public Lands Day. This workshop introduced them to the Forest Service mission, the staff on the Española Ranger District and demonstrated how the specialists work together as a team in the best interest of the forest’s resources.

This year the Y crew cycled through four work stations at the Santa Fe National Forest’s Española Ranger District. The morning started off with the elite Española fire team demonstrating the tools of their trade and what it takes to be a firefighter.
