Program Description

The BLM is interested in working with youth conservation corps crews to complete conservation projects that provide crew members with the opportunity to gain experience, learn about public lands, further their understanding and appreciation of natural and cultural resources, and pique their interest in natural resource careers. Young men and women who participate in the rehabilitation and restoration of our nation's natural, cultural, historic, archaeological, recreational, and scenic treasures will gain an increased appreciation and understanding of our public lands and of the value of public service, and are likely to become life-long advocates for those values. The objective of this project is to provide youth the opportunity to connect with the natural world through the completion of Fuels Management projects on Federal, State, County, and private lands in Washington State. The goal of these projects will be to provide youth with positive work experiences, develop work skills and a sense of personal responsibility, encourage a long term community service commitment, and create the potential for future employment in natural resource management.
