The Manti-La Sal National Forest recently awarded five local residents who have each provided more than 500 hours of volunteer service.

These volunteers and others alike, do thousands of hours of work every year for the Manti-LaSal National Forest. Few of these volunteers accumulate over 500 hours, and those who did, were given added thanks and were recognized by the Forest Service on March 24 at the Price office.

These recipients were recognized and given America the Beautiful passes and certificates of recognition.

Donald Vest and Mert Parkins each donated over 500 hours and worked at the Goosebury Mammoth Range Station's north section from Fairview to Tucker and Scofield.

Rolland Jensen donated over 500 hours was at Ferron Reservoir and Duck Fork Reservoir.

Clarence Christensen donated over 1,000 hours and worked out of Goosebury his section was Electric Lake to Ferron Reservoir, Julie Hansen donated over 500 hours.

These volunteers act as campground hosts, collect fees, educate public on Forest Service laws, give information on ATV trails, help maintain and build trails, refurbish the redwood signs, build fences, improve campgrounds, clean and stock bathrooms, maintain disperse camping areas, provide information to visitors and more.

They help the agency protect the resource and provide the experience visitors have come to expect when visiting the Forest. These volunteers and others may work all season, others - including church groups, boy scouts, dedicated hunters, senior volunteers and more - may provide a day or two of service.

Without their assistance, many important tasks would not be completed. All volunteers for the year of 2009 donated a total of 9.91 person years to the Manti-LaSal National forest valued at over $250,000.
