For the past two months, an LCC crew has performed work in the Sequoia National Park as part of a project funded through a private donation to the National Park Foundation. This project was performed under our 21st Century designation and Sue Carter, who has spear headed our Public Lands work, along with Ismael Barajas, who supervised the project, were the leads. For two months, our crew worked in the park Monday through Friday, returning to Fresno for the weekend. Yesterday, the couple who donated the funding for the project traveled from Utah to meet with our corpsmembers and hear, first hand, about the impact the project had on them. Also present was the Executive from the National Park Foundation who solicited the donation from the couple. This project made such an impression on our young people that one of our young ladies, Adriana Robles, has asked for a leave from the corps so she can volunteer to work at on a project for the next two weeks. As part of this project, the crew received college credit from Reedley College and earned around 325 hours towards federal public lands non-competitive hiring.
