    Across the Zuni Mountains landscape, ALCC is cultivating the next generation of local land stewards. In what is now known as El Morro National Monument, ALCC crews have spearheaded the Headland Trail project which consists of removing the existing asphalt trail and replacing it with “Sta-Lok” material, which is a paving material made of decomposed granite and crushed stone. The project also includes masonry work, such as foundation setting for trail curbing and retaining walls. This project will increase accessibility for visitors while creating a natural look.

    Wood for Life turns downed trees into firewood for Indigenous communities, teaches job skills

    News

    The roars of chainsaws and ATV engines echoed last week through an area of the Coconino National Forest west of Flagstaff as youth crews collected and processed wood for Navajo and Hopi communities.


    The crews are part of Wood for Life, which worked Thursday afternoon to repurpose downed trees from various forest health and restoration projects into much-needed firewood and building materials for nearby tribal communities.


    Now in its fourth year, the program is the result of a partnership between the Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps, the National Forest Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service and more. This year, Wood for Life also received a $50,000 boost from the Arizona Lottery Gives Back program.
