This Labor Day, we’re celebrating how Washington Conservation Corps and Puget Sound Conservation Corps crews use valuable work on DNR-managed lands to launch them into Washington’s workforce and careers. Corps members gain experience while helping to fill a variety of needs – from working on DNR trails and campgrounds to caring for wild spaces by removing invasive species and fostering the growth of native plant. Even now, crews are assisting the wildfire fighting efforts in Eastern Washington.
The Corps, founded in 1983, is a multi-agency effort that invests in future generations by building their professional skills and stewardship for the state’s natural landscapes, high-quality recreation opportunities, and the Puget Sound.

In collaboration with DNR, Veteran Affairs, the Department of Fish and Wildlife, AmeriCorps, and State Parks, the Department of Ecology is seeking interested young people and veterans for next year’s Corps crews.
The Corps is hiring right now. For more information and to apply online, visit www.ecy.wa.gov/wcc. Visit their member positions page for more info about qualifications and member benefits. Positions start October 3, 2015.
