Substantial Involvement Documentation Type of funds to be used for this project: Recreational Fee Demonstration, 20% - Public Lands Corps Program (PLC) PMIS # 130621D. l. Why was this cooperator selected? The Southeast Alaska Guidance Association (SAGA) was selected for their experience, knowledge, skill and past work with GLBA. SAGA and GLBA have been working cooperatively since 2001 and completed many conservation projects within the park. Explain the nature of the anticipated substantial involvement? What will NPS specifically do to carry out the project? The NPS will provide a work leader and a trails work crew to provide project direction, guidance and work alongside the SAGA work crew. The NPS will provide project management oversight. The NPS will provide environmental educational training opportunities for the SAGA crew members conducted by GLBA employees with ecological credentials or that are subject matter experts. The NPS will provide $25,000 in PLC funding, ground transportation, fuel, a suitable camp site, specialized tools and portable park radios for safety considerations. 2. Why is the substantial involvement considered to be necessary? This substantial involvement is necessary to complete conservation projects where GLBA lacks the capacity and provide exposure to SAGA members to a Southeast Alaska National Park environment and to the NPS mission. 3. What are the deliverables expected? SAGA will provide a six person crew with two team leaders for 20work days plus as much time as required for mobilization/demobilization. The crew will complete trail brushing and repairs, Trail Boardwalk maintenance, roadside vegetation management, and painting of historic park buildings and other park structures within the Bartlett Cove area. SAGA will provide transportation to the worksite, camp gear and food for all the crewmembers. 4. What is the purpose of the agreement? To work cooperatively to complete conservation projects within the park and provide life experiences for the SAGA crew members. 6. Explain why the project or activity entails a relationship of assistance rather than a contract. How will the PI and/or graduate students benefit from this collaboration? In the Public Lands Corps Act of 1993 Congress found that: conserving natural and cultural resources and maintaining environmentally important lands and waters using young adults in a Public Lands Corps can provide these individuals with education and work opportunities that further their appreciation of natural and cultural resources and provide a means to pay for higher education, while benefiting the economy and the environment; many facilities and natural resources on eligible service lands are degraded or in disrepair and need labor intensive rehabilitation that federal agencies are unable to provide at current personnel levels; youth conservation corps have a good record of restoring and maintaining these facilities in a cost effective and efficient manner. The members of the SAGA crew will learn to make the connection between what they learn and how they live through improving the lives, land and communities in Alaska. 7. How was the determination made that the costs proposed are accurate and proper? Provide a breakdown of costs and rationale for determining they are acceptable. The PLC funding program maximum is $25,000 per project. SAGA determines the number of days a crew can be on site with the available funding considering the cost of mobilization and demobilization to the specific work site, subsistence and camp requirements. See attached SAGA cost breakdown estimate.
