“Invasive species removal made me realize that I have a talent for identifying plants and have a love to grow and nurture them. Botany may be my thing.”
“I’ve gained an appreciation for the little things, like cookies or a popsicle after a long week in the woods. Furthermore, P-CREW has helped me to gain a newfound appreciation for the stuff I usually take for granted like a mattress, toilet paper, and running water.”
“My favorite part was meeting such a diverse group of people and being able to befriend them.”
“My highlight of P-CREW has been accomplishing goals and challenges I assumed I would never achieve.”
“Let me just tell you this is going to be one crazy, fun, amazing, emotional, memory making and life changing experience! You’re going to work HARD, play harder, live, eat, do chores, everything together with these strangers, and just before you know it these strangers are gonna become family.”
“I didn’t have my phone so I became more comfortable disconnecting and I got in better shape by hiking a lot, and pushing through tough times!”
“P-CREW helped me a lot because I feel like I gained a lot of perspective through meeting new people, and I was put into situations where I had to take care of myself.”
“What made P-CREW worth it for me was seeing the work we accomplished, whether it was miles of trail, feet of fencing, or vast amounts of burn piles! On top of that, it’s really great to understand the impact of what you’re doing.”
