San Bernardino National Forest Association
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Executive Summary The mission of the San Bernardino National Forest Association Urban Conservation Corps Forest Aid AmeriCorps program is to reduce and prevent catastrophic wildfires on the San Bernardino National Forest. This is achieved through a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary program approach that trains young people (ages 18-24) to serve on conservation crews that perform wildfire recovery and prevention efforts on the National Forest, as well as in the Wildland Urban Interface communities. In addition, hundreds of volunteers are also recruited to assist in these efforts.
