Student Conservation Association (SCA) is partnering with USFWS Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge and Mississippi Sandhill Crane Refuge to administer a Mississippi Prescribed Fire Corps team.

Three crew members will serve with an experienced SCA crew leader. This crew will serve on projects including prescribed fires, manual and mechanical fuels reduction projects, fire effects monitoring, and educational outreach. Most prescribed fire and fuels work will be based in coastal Mississippi with periodic travel to other refuges in the region. There will be occasional camping in remote areas as project activities dictate. This crew will receive essential training, credentials and experience to provide a good foundation to pursue a wildland fire and/or forestry careers.
