From January 29, 2018, until late April 2018, WildEarth Guardians is organizing a Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program in New Mexico. The work project will be located at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge in South Albuquerque. The project will focus on harvesting plant material from the Bosque del Apache NWR, transporting material, and planting material in the newly created Valle de Oro NWR. The project will also include planting wetland seed plugs, native grass seeding, trail construction, and noxious weed removal. Camping may be necessary for two to three weeks while harvesting at the Bosque del Apache NWR. WildEarth Guardians’ YCC program strives to provide employment and job training for youth interested in a natural resource management career.
