2016 Wilderness Volunteers Service Project on Admiralty Island National Monument
Our service project included invasive species removal and a number of other important tasks for the Forest Service. After traveling to Juneau, Alaska, the Forest Service took our group on a ~4 hour boat ride to a wilderness camp on the shore in the Seymour Canal where we set up camp for the week. Each day we traveled by boat and went to work removing invasive flora including black bindweed, reed canarygrass, and brittlestem hempnettle. Other tasks included walking along shores collecting washed up debris, surveying for invasive species, and solitude monitoring.
