Washington Conservation Corps
The Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) is a year-round program of the State of Washington that provides young people aged 18-25 with hands-on experience protecting and enhancing Washington’s natural resources. Trail building, restoration plantings, and biological monitoring are just a few of the tasks of WCC members who earn $9.19/hour and receive a $5,500 Americorps Education Award. Additionally, WCC members attend a series of trainings throughout the year, such as Wilderness First Responder, Wildland Firefighting, Hazardous Materials Response, Ethnobotany, and GIS/GPS.
