Six summer youth from Youth Development Inc. worked 288 hours in PETR Facility Management operations, removing 4 miles of hazard fuels along the park boundary, installing signs, trail counters and waysides.  They were funded with Public Land Corp Funds.

The youth received weekly interpretive training and became CPR certified.  At the end of the summer they learned more than they ever expected about Albuquerque's only National Park unit.
