A beautiful photo of first light at Glacier National Park in Montana. Of the image, photographer Kevin LeFevre says: “While shooting the sunrise at Bowman Lake, we were graced with this meandering doe. I scrambled to change my camera settings to accommodate the movement and pulled off this solitary photo. A once in a lifetime.” While parts of Glacier are closed because of ‪‎Reynolds Creek Fire‬, most of the park remains open, including Bowman Lake area. Photo courtesy of Kevin LeFevre.

AmeriCorps member helping others navigate challenges he faced

Nick Noble is currently serving his second 450 hour AmeriCorps term of service with the Utah Conservation Corps’ (UCC) inclusive crew. The inclusive crew was established in 2007 by AmeriCorps member Andy Zimmer and UCC assistant director Kate Stephens to engage persons of all abilities in environmental stewardship projects.

Last summer Noble, who has a significant visual impairment, served his first term on a UCC trail crew in High Uintas Wilderness navigating difficult terrain and taking on new and challenging conservation service work. This crew reduced fuels on 5.75 acres and completed heavy maintenance on almost a mile of popular trail.

While he is physically able to work on any UCC crew, this summer Noble applied specifically to the inclusive crew survey project so that he could help crew members with disabilities successfully navigate the new challenges of conservation crew work. He originally applied to be a crew member this summer with the intention of pursuing crew leadership next summer. Instead, UCC staff encouraged him to be a crew leader and he stepped up confidently into this role.
