Last Saturday, the WMBC hosted a sawyer certification class. In total, we had 13 WMBC sawyers, 1 Whatcom county park employee and 6 BCH members all got their USFS level B or C sawyer certifications.
We started the day with a classroom session going over the basics and then we headed to the woods to get practical experience and allow the instructors to evaluate everyone’s use of the saw in different scenariois. This allows all of the sawyers to clear blowdown with any public land manager in the country! The BCH folks also got a crosscut class for clearing trees in the Wilderness.
Big thanks to Tom and Tony from the Backcountry Horsemen for their instruction and our class of fantastic sawyers!
