Kelly Forks Residential YCC Program
Forest/ Grassland: Nez Perce-Clearwater NF
Start & End Date: June 23 - August 3, 2019
Project Description: Four youth will be selected to participate in the program and will be stationed at the beautiful Kelly Forks Work Center in the heart of the Clearwater Mountains. This YCC crew will be based out of the Kelly Forks Work Center, located on the North Fork Ranger District of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests. This unique place is located in north-central Idaho, where crew members will work together with a Forest Service crew leader and Forest Service program staff to complete conservation projects. These projects may include trail maintenance and construction, campground maintenance, landscape restoration projects, resource management, visitor support services, and a wide variety of other projects. Some of the summer’s projects will be based out of Kelly Forks Work Center, while some more remote projects will require crews to backpack and camp at primitive sites.
