Crew members meet at base camp on the afternoon or evening of the day before the first day of their work week for dinner and an orientation session. The first day of the work week begins with a hearty breakfast at 7 a.m. followed by travel to the project. The remainder of the first day is spent on some combination of working on the project and setting up a field camp. The crew spends the next three days working on the project. On the final day of the work week the schedule is the reverse of first—field camp is packed up, some work may be done on the project, and the crew travels back to base camp. Tools, the field kitchen and vehicles are cleaned, followed by an optional celebratory dinner. Volunteers who will be volunteering for the next session are welcome to stay at the base camp between sessions, with the exception of the mid-season break.
Please note that there are now three days off between each crew session and a 6 day break in the middle of the season. Crew weeks are highlighted in light blue on the calendar below. Please contact us with any questions about the new schedule.
