Individuals who are attracted to this challenging opportunity will ultimately enjoy the benefit of knowing their successful efforts that implement CFSC’s programs have prevented devastating wildfires, saved whole communities and countless families’ homes, and preserved vulnerable watersheds along with their surrounding forests.
