Youth Expand Trails & Establish Entry Path at Totopotomoy Creek

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT A REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS.

This announcement is to provide public notice of the National Park Service’s intention to award a task agreement under a previously competed or single source justified master cooperative agreement.

Master Cooperative Agreement

Number P15AC00031 was entered into by and between the Department of the Interior, National Park Service, (NPS), and The Student Conservation Association (SCA) to build the next generation of conservation leaders and inspire lifelong stewardship of our environment and communities by engaging young people in hands-on service to the land through service opportunities, outdoor skills, and leadership training.

In this project, youth will have an opportunity for hands-on engagement in work that encompasses historic preservation, natural resource management, and trail maintenance, thereby exposing them to careers in land management and gaining job skills in the field of conservation.This project will engage youth in the work of enhancing the visitor experience at the park’s newly acquired Totopotomoy Creek unit as well as a variety of park resource management tasks and experiences.

Youth will gain experience in significant field-based work that encompasses historic preservation at a 300-year-old site that witnessed American Revolutionary War and Civil War activity.

Youth will also learn how trails are created and maintained.

These activities will highlight career opportunities with a land management agency in fields that include cultural and natural resource management and maintenance.

Resource Management Interns will learn and gain experience in many aspects of GIS, biological sciences and resource management.

They will also work to control invasive vegetation along trails and in landscapes to foster health of native forest and wetland habitats.
