Clarence Cannon NWR Gets a Facelift
Midwest Region, July 29, 2011
Print Friendly Version

The Youth Conservation Corps crew at Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge endured upwards of 100 degree temperatures during a three week project on the Refuge entrance sign. The new sign now has a stone frame matching the headquarters building constructed in 2008. The project required the young adults to utilize various construction skills as they built the frame for a poured concrete base, installed cinder blocks and applied a stone facade.

Additional tasks assigned throughout the summer included mowing, weed eating, power washing, tree trimming, sign posting and numerous other projects. Valuable life skills learned ranged from the use of hammers and shovels to transits and levels.

The sign is a beautiful addition to the office and is built to endure the test of time. Hats off to the Youth Conservation Corps crew at Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge and across the country – they are a great investment to the future!
