Traditional Skills Team

FOC is providing training for Forest Service employees, agency contractors and volunteers in a traditional set of work and problem solving skills for both front country and backcountry locations.  Hands on training and technology transfer at the project level build a greater cadre of experienced agency, interested stakeholder groups and contractors.  Framing Our Community will provide a team of instructors and project managers to handle the logistics, acquisition of supplies, and hands-on instruction of agency employees, volunteers and workforce training students in the construction and repair of bridges, dams, trails and historic structures.  A team structure allows for work to be completed at specific locations, in a safe and economic fashion, while providing “on the job training”.
