TRAINING YOUTH IN ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION

TRAINING YOUTH IN ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION
Engaging youth in the field of natural resource stewardship has been a foundational element of Lomakatsi since our inception in 1995. This summer, Lomakatsi is providing youth from all over southern Oregon with workforce training and employment opportunities in ecosystem restoration. Pictured here, Lomakatsi workforce trainers recently led eight Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) participants in active restoration projects on Forest Service lands in the Tiller Ranger District. Beginning next week, two additional Lomakatsi programs, the Ashland Watershed Youth Training and Employment Program and the Klamath Tribal Youth Training and Employment Program, will provide local youth from the Rogue Valley and tribal youth from the Klamath Basin with hands-on educational experiences this summer designed to inspire exploration and interest in natural resource career paths.
