Welcome to the Forest Guild

Regional Forester Visits Forest Guild Youth Corps

Regional Forester Cal Joyner of the USDA Forest Service Region 3 on a field visit with the Forest Guild’s Youth Corps, Mountainair NM.

Regional Forester Cal Joyner spent a day visiting and working with the Mountainair Forest Guild Youth Corps crew on the Mountainair Ranger District of the Cibola National Forest. The Forest Guild Youth Corps have maintained a summer youth crew of 16-19 year olds on the Mountainair Ranger District for over 15 years (learn more here). The photo on the right shows them in the 2007 Ojo Peak Fire burned area clearing access to a trailhead and mitigating erosion on an old access route using downed logs. The next step is to key-in the woody debris so that it can catch sediment and limit erosion in the burned area.
