"I have told my superiors that if we can have only one youth crew I would like it to be the team from MLK. They do double the work and quality of any other crew. I attribute most of this to the crew leaders. I also enjoy seeing the great improvement of the youth as they gain experience.p>
The Lowell pole building project was one of those tasks I asked your crews to do, as we did not have anyone on the district that would do the work. Hauling off all the trash, and recycle items which were on site was a major undertaking. Not only did you haul away all of the gabions and other metal, you also weed-eated the whole site. This work will be very beneficial to the Forest Service as it will be going up for sale the first of April. The clean up you did for us make the property presentable to the public.
All the work your crews did cleaning campgrounds has also allowed us to get started on the preseason cleanup. Your crews completed the work in a more rapid time, while performing at a high-level, than our recreation department expected and they were caught off guard when I asked for more work task.
Thank you for all the work your crews provide the Middle Fork RD. They allow us to complete task that would not be undertaken without you."
