Crew Members

Are you or your child a high school student who enjoys the outdoors and conservation and would like to get paid to work and live together with a crew of similarly aged people, camping and backpacking to remote areas in the Chiricahua Mountains of southeast Arizona and learning the skills required to maintain and repair hiking trails?

Do you have a passion for teaching the next generation of young conservationists in the backcountry? Are you currently enrolled in an outdoor education program or have experience working with diverse groups of youth between the ages of 15 and 18?
