This season is coming to an end here for the Mt Adams wilderness crew. I am so thankful to have served with each of these amazing people who took me under their wings and taught me how to be a wilderness ranger. The things i experienced will forever make me a better person and a better outdoorsman. And the friendships made will last a lifetime. This wilderness ranger crew makes a massive impact on preserving the designated wilderness areas within the Gifford Pinchot and these last completely wild lands would be lost if not for the hard work and long hours dedicated by these fine humans. Thank you for this life changing experience that I will be forever grateful for! #mtadamsinstitute #americorps #vetswork #wildernessranger #wildernessculture #mountainlife ...

Also fun fact that Chris is helping with a paddle right now! Repost: Chris Sutherland is a returning VetsWork Intern serving as the Field Technician for the estuarypartnership

"I began the term right where I left off, pulling ivy, blackberry, holly, and cleaning up sites for future restorative efforts. Something different for me this year is the big canoe paddle trips. I have always loved the water and to be able to take people from our communities out on our rivers and lakes is an experience I will never forget."

Thank you for your continued service, Chris!

KCD is sad to be losing the amazing Krystal Hedrick, who has accepted a new position as GIS Mapper with the Weld County Assessor’s Office in Colorado.

She served at KCD over the past year through Mount Adams Institute VetsWork, an AmeriCorps career development program for military veterans who want to work in natural resources management.

As a forest technician, Krystal brought passion to her work on KCD’s North SeaTac Park restoration managing a KCD WCC crew to remove harmful invasive plants and prepare the site for reforestation efforts that will improve the park’s ecosystem making it more resilient and beneficial for local wildlife.

This lucky jersey calf gets to grow up on pasture and will be milked twice a day. She will primarily eat grass, and only eat grain when milked. I have come to be a huge supporter of organic dairy, especially the organic valley label which is a farmer owned cooperative. #cascademountainschool ...
