Wyoming Conservation Corps Offers 24 Summer Job Positions
February 5, 2008 — The Wyoming Conservation Corps needs to fill 24 crew member slots for the summer. Applications are due March 28. For more information, call (307) 766-6436 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
A crew member position involves working and living outdoors with a group to complete six 10-day projects throughout the summer. Crews work on projects ranging from trail construction and maintenance to reclamation and rehabilitation of public lands, at sites throughout Wyoming. The WCC provides workers with food, transportation, tools and camping equipment while working on projects.
As WCC members, students become AmeriCorps members and are eligible for a $1,250 education award and a $3,250 living stipend. Students can also receive one upper-division environment and natural resources course credit at no cost for completing the WCC class as part of the term of service. Health insurance is also available.
Applicants with an interest in forestry will have an opportunity to complete field experience in forestry work as part of one crew, and they should specify this interest in their applications.
Wyoming Conservation Corps members constructed a trail last summer at Curt Gowdy State Park.
