The FMS RAC works closely with the U.S. Forest Service and county officials to recommend projects that will benefit forest health, fish, wildlife, soils, watersheds and other resources; maintain roads, trails and other infrastructure; or control noxious weeds.

The application form AD-755 is available at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/scnfs/AD755/.

Interested candidates must submit their application by Feb. 28, 2014 to: Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests, Attn: FMS RAC, 4931 Broad River Road, Columbia, SC 29212.
