Sawyer Class 2024

Five NMVFO volunteers and five NMWild new-hires met at Tres Piedras Ranger Station to be certified as crosscut sawyers, in a two-day class taught by Craig, Jennifer, and Courtney from the Carson National Forest. The first day of the new USFS curriculum is theory, presented as Powerpoint with embedded videos.

Volunteers car-camped at nearby 64-G dispersed camping area.

The next day was all field instruction and evaluation.

A big thanks goes out to our instructors with the Carson, and volunteers for dedicating time to level-up and maintain their trail skills.
