*Work Crews

One of the ways NWRCC manages expenses is by asking members to complete at least 2 work days on the property each year. Work Crew participants do 3 hrs of light yard work such as edging around the pits, using a riding mower to cut the grass where the big tractor cannot go or other field/ site maintenance projects.

Work Crew Participation Requirements/ Options

  • Work crews are optional for Junior members (ages 16-18). There is no fee for Junior members to opt out of Work Crews. Youth members are exempt from work crew responsibilities.

  • Members may request exemption from Work Crews due to disability or other qualifying limitations, light duty work may be assigned as needed. Exemption requires NWRCC President approval.

  • Members may elect to pay a $125 annual Work Crew opt out fee instead of contributing 2 work days during the year.

You can find more detail on NWRCC membership requirements and fees on the NWRCC Membership Application.
