Green Visions: wanted: 500 young people to work in nature and get paid for it
Back in the '30s, during the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps provided natural-resource jobs to out-of-work young men so they could support their families.
The federal government expanded on that program in the '70s with the summer Youth Conservation Corps and the year-round Young Adult Conservation Corps. And when federal support for the program ended in 1981, Minnesota took up the banner and created the Minnesota Conservation Corps, a program that's looking, now, for a few good young men and women.
Try about 500.
