The crew also will assist with habitat restoration, including propagating native plants; preparing sites for planting; and establishing native vegetation at restoration sites. In addition, the crew may repair and construct trails, complete soils testing and/or complete other activities that support park operations and learning. The crew leader and crew members also will meet with park staff across divisions for informational and educational purposes. RECIPIENT AGREES TO: 1.

Review and approve one stage of work before the next stage begins. 4. Help select the crew leader and crew members. 5. Direct or redirect work because of interrelationships with other projects. 6.
