Field experience

Today I and fellow squad leaders completed Conservation USA training with 4 hours of field work. We started with project planning, tool talk and risk assessment.

The photo shows Raj and Mike (?) pounding a stake behind a water bar to keep it place controlling erosion. We worked on a few spots on a trial in Camp Olmsted, where my troop was 2 years ago.

After my training was done, I hiked over to Camp Post, found my squad of 8 youth from Tipisa Lodge as well as my crew leader Jake.

Breakfast is 6:15 tomorrow, followed by an hour or so drive to James River area for trail work. Can't wait!
