Persevere Welcomes New Volunteers to Staff

Ben Walton and Paul Bergstrom of Minnesota have joined the Persevere operations staff in Mississippi. They bring with them an extensive knowledge of forestry and chainsaw operation.

Ben and Paul worked alongside the Persevere Tree Team this past October when they were members of the Minnesota Conservation Corps. MCC sent some of their experienced members to aid in Katrina recovery.

After returning home and completing their commitment to MCC Ben and Paul decided to head back to the Gulf Coast and volunteer with Persevere. Ben and Paul have committed the next four months to volunteering with Persevere’s Katrina Relief Project.
