Unless otherwise specified herein, the terms and conditions as stated in the Master Cooperative Agreement will apply to this Task Agreement. This project, Log Slide Location to Sable Falls Trail Improvement Project, includes work identified along segments of the North Country National Scenic Trail. These trail segments are parallel with the Lake Superior shore and include inclines and are considered remote within this unit of the National Park Service (NPS). The proposed campsite location for this group to be used as their muster and staging area is in the vicinity of the Log Slide. Further specific instructions on and pertaining to the campsite location and rules and regulations to be followed, will be provided upon arrival. Work shall include the following: Replacement of trail bridges; replacement of board walks; replacement of back country style stairs / step structures; construction of boardwalk extensions; improvement of back country trail traffic surfaces; construction of corduroy traffic surface, and trail clearing as necessary. Tools will be required to be removed from the work site when there is no PLC representative on site and stored and secured, accordingly. Work shall be performed on-site and at the location of each facility structure within its respective trail segment; park visitors, day-hikers, and through-hikers will be utilizing these trails during the contract period and work should progress with consideration for these users of the trail system and park, thus allowing passage and minimizing the inconvenience and impact to these persons from their intended progress. The principal purpose of the project is to support the Government's objective to provide opportunities for youth to learn about the environment by spending time working on projects in National Parks. The NPS receives the indirect benefit of completing conservation projects. Also, the project motivates its youth participants to become involved in the natural, cultural and /or historical resource protection of their communities and beyond. Students gain hands-on experience outside of the classroom of natural, cultural and/or historical resource projects. The group participants will gain the skills and experience to engage their peers and community in environmental stewardship. Throughout the program, students will have the opportunity to visit and learn about the National Park where they may be working with other youth on service learning projects in a team-based training program. The students will be encouraged to provide presentations to their peers and communities about their experience and in doing so will be delivering a message of environmental stewardship.
