A Day in the Life with the Clean Up Crew at Assateague Island National Seashore Park
Liz Davis, Chief of Interpretation and Education at the national park, tells Sean about the park and the people who work there.
“We don’t have our full seasonal contingent working right now. So were a bit of a skeleton crew this time of year, but we can get some of these major projects done. We have some projects that can really only be done in the winter,” Liz says. “For instance, we have one down in our salt marsh where we have to be working when the Marsh Grass isn’t actively growing. Here in the campgrounds we had a lot of wind and over wash, so we have a lot of sand removal that were working on now.”
Liz says they are open year round for camping, so this project cannot wait for summer. Sean joins Randy Hartz, Maintenance Mechanic Supervisor, to help clear sand from the campsites.
