Staff Training & Project Checks

Meet our 2011 Trail Crew Staff:

Crew Leaders: Josh Kloehn and Tori Kuehn
Assistant Crew Leaders: Kathyryn Herndon and Jeff Curtis
Camp Coordinator: David Hebert
(Hopefully we can capture a picture of the 5 of them sometime this season!)

While David worked hard to get basecamp ready for the upcoming season, the field staff did some training around camp and then headed off for a whirlwind tour around Southwest Virginia to visit all of the Virginia projects they will be working on this season. They had chainsaw training this past weekend and are headed south to do project checks in Georgia, North Carolina and Tennesse later this week. It's been a busy, but fun preseason! The staff are getting anxious for the first week of volunteers to arrive in Sugar Grove!! Check out a few photos from the past 2 weeks:
