USFS Roving Resource Crew Series

This summer, we are tagging along with the United States Forest Service (USFS) Roving Resource Crew as they visit and work at multiple national forests!

Part 1: USFS Roving Resource Team Kicks Off Their Summer Adventure

Meet the team and learn about their training process before traveling across the country to northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, West Virginia, and New Hampshire.

Part 2: Making the Most of Minnesota

The team begins their journey by visiting Chippewa National Forest and Camp Rabideau.

Part 3: A Superior Experience

After encountering some critters and looking for ghosts along the way, the group finds themselves at their next work stop, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, to conduct surveys for the Western Division of the forest.

Part 4: Feeling “Pine”

Part 4 of the summer series takes us to the team’s lodging space at Trees for Tomorrow in Northern Wisconsin. From there, they head out to survey campgrounds, replace picnic tables, and even find time to go for a swim.

Part 5: Hello to Hiawatha

The summer winds down as the crew heads to Hiawatha National Forest for more survey work.
