As we near the end of the season, we were lucky enough to work on a project that taught us some brand new skills. For some of us, that meant using a brush cutter for the first time - for others, it was building a jack leg fence! After a summer of spraying for invasive weeds, it felt good to exercise some different muscles. Building the fence gave us immediate satisfaction - we watched the fruit of our labors grow with every rail we nailed in. Knowing the fence we were working on was going to protect sensitive riparian habitats made us feel good about the work as well.
Despite being a short hitch, we all were feeling lucky that we got to spend some time doing work that was so different from what we had been doing for a majority of the season. It felt great knowing we were adaptable as a crew and could rise up to any challenge.
