Teenagers looking for summer work can take part in the Youth Conservation Corps program at Redwood National and State Parks.
Girls and boys from the ages of 15 through 18 can complete various conservation projects from June 25 to Aug. 16. A public drawing will choose six girls and six boys from Humboldt and Del Norte counties.
The workers will earn $7.50 an hour over four 10-hour days each week. They must bring their lunches and find their own transportation to and from either the Crescent City Headquarters in Del Norte County or the Park Service Arcata office in Humboldt County.
Projects include trail building and maintenance, painting, landscape and general park cleanup. The enrollees may also help maintain backcountry roads and remove exotic plant species in the parks.
Local high schools have the enrollment applications that must be filed at park headquarters by May 4.
For more information, call the park at 465-7321 or 465-7323 or stop by Redwood National and State Parks Headquarters at 1111 Second St., Crescent City, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
