AmeriCorps Orientation Day

Silver Falls was fortunate to be awarded another AmeriCorps NCCC team this Fall!


A team of 10 young men and women arrived at Silver Falls this past Saturday after a long drive from their training headquarters in Sacramento, CA.  They were greeted with a hospitality table full of goodies made by the Friends of Silver Falls, park staff and their families.  They (and Silver Falls staff!) are looking forward to trail work, infrastructure improvement, historical preservation, and special event support.
