Why not have youth take leadership in helping maintain the health of our unique Olympic National Forest while getting some fresh air and exercise themselves?
And so a new partnership was formed between 4-H youth and the USFS.
The 4-H Stewardship Program is NOW HIRING this fall 2010:
- 12 Port Townsend area teens, ages 14-18
- To work six "saturdays on the ground" to help clean, replant, and reinvigorate our local public forest lands.
(To be fair, Chimacum area youth will be hired this spring and Quilcene area youth have Quilcene Ranger Corps this summer.)
The work days this fall for Port Townsend area youth participants are scheduled from September - November, 2010.
Planned activities include:
- Fish Toss (returning salmon carcasses to a river)
- Picnic table restoration
- Watershed cleanup day
- Elk forage restoration
- Trail building
- and more!
If you or someone you know is interested in joining the 4-H Stewardship Program, have them write to Pamela Roberts, WSU Jefferson County 4-H Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org (this is the best way to contact her ) or you can call her at 765-0124.
