Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

UP: To the partnership between the Washington-Morgan Community Action and the U.S. Forest Service that has given nine Washington County teenagers summer jobs working in the Wayne National Forest. The high school students and two teens from Puerto Rico, have been working with the Youth Conservation Corps on forest projects, including making fire pits, mowing, replacing bridges, basic maintenance and upkeep of the parks/campgrounds in the forest. This is a wonderful first-job opportunity for these students that not only will give them an opportunity to earn money through hard work, but also will help them learn to work with others, and, hopefully, give them an appreciation for the outdoor opportunities in their own backyard.
