For this week, LaCC went to two separate locations. First, on Monday, we returned to the Kisatchie National Forest where we were stationed the prior week. There, we earned our certification to fell trees on national land. We stayed there for two more days, cutting down various invasive species.
We returned to Baton Rogue on Wednesday. The following day, we rode over to Cypress Island, a beautiful nature preserve with one of the largest cypress trees in the world. We stayed along a trail next to a lake, cutting down more invasive trees. After another two days of working, we returned home.
