From the field:
The crew was very professional and highly motivated! They came prepared for fence installation and repair and did excellent fence work. They also constructed a wooden deck for a Yurt and performed exotic species removal when the fencing location was inaccessible due to heavy monsoon rains. We have worked with Arizona Conservation Corps in the past and will work with them in the future!
