Teenagers looking for summer work in the great outdoors may be in luck.
The Lower Trinity and Mad River Ranger Districts within the Six Rivers National Forest are seeking motivated and enthusiastic individuals who will be 15–18 this summer for paid employment opportunities in its Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program.
Each district crew will consist of six members who will work full-time for eight weeks, June 17–Aug. 9.
Applications must be received no later than April 15, 2013.
This is a non-residential program and participants are required to provide their own transportation on a daily basis to and from their respective Ranger Station. Transportation to the field work sites will be provided by the Forest Service. Crew members will work Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and must come prepared with proper work boots, work clothes and lunches.
“This program provides a great opportunity for youth to work, learn and earn together, doing projects that further the development and conservation of the forest’s natural resources,” a Forest Service press release states.
