Volunteers must commit to 1 entire session; may participate in more

The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest (ASNF) is looking for PIT volunteers to team up with HistoriCorps, a Colorado-based, historic preservation group, specializing in the reconstruction and preservation of the nation’s historic buildings. The ASNF is located in east-central Arizona, and sits above the Mogollon Rim. This area of Arizona played an important part in the story of the Southwest and continues to do so today. Our efforts this year will focus on the Pinedale Work Center: a compound of buildings that include a Rangers’ House, barn, office, well house, paint house, and masonry blasts houses. The buildings were designed by USFS architects and then constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1934. They played a significant role in the management of Forest Service lands, particularly for the logging industry. Work will include learning how to remove lead based paint, make repairs to siding and trim, and perform other maintenance-related activities to restore these buildings to their former glory. HistoriCorps generally provides the tools and training needed, so whether you’re a pro or have never swung a hammer, this is still the project for you – we hope to see you this summer!
