Duck banding at 6 a.m.

As a whole, the Ottertail crew is not a morning crew. Every morning, without fail, we eat granola and bagels, because nobody will ever wake up to make hot breakfast. “Mrrmph” and “aaahm” are typical morning greetings. You can imagine the crew’s reaction when I announced our project hosts’ plan for duck banding of meeting up at 6 a.m. the following morning, a full hour earlier than usual, and head for the hills.

Corps News
Faces of Tomorrow and seasonal crews wrap up summer of work

This summer, the Corps joined forces with Superior National Forest to hire and train 12 young adult corps members to serve in Northeast Minnesota. Through its Faces of Tomorrow initiative, Superior National Forest offered intensive training and work experience to under-represented individuals to help them move into full-time conservation positions.

The yurts are coming

In July, Corps field coordinators installed seven yurts at three state park and recreation areas, offering unique lodging for visitors. The 20-foot shelters, made with Colorado Yurt Co. materials, are equipped with woodstoves for year-round use and are located in remote areas not accessible by car.
