The CBYCC crews will work on a variety of projects including those that focus on silviculture, wildlife and fisheries, facilities maintenance, recreation, fuels reduction, trail development, weed management, stream restoration, and protection of heritage and other high conservation value sites. The intent is that work projects provide a valuable experience for the crew, but also accomplish a productive task for the sponsoring partner.
