YCC

Yellowstone National Park is recruiting for the 2013 Youth Conservation Corps program which is a residential work and education program for young men and women between the ages of 15 and 18. The program is designed to develop an appreciation for the nation’s natural resources and heritage through unique educational, recreational and work experiences. Yellowstone will offer two, month-long YCC sessions: from June 9th through July 10th, and again from July 14th to August 14th. Fifty young people will be selected from across the country to participate in the program. No previous wilderness experience is required, but a willingness and ability to work in a physically active outdoor program. Participants will be required to live on location, and room and board will be provided at a minimal cost. Wages are the federal minimum wage. Applicants must be citizens of the United States and be 15 years of age by June 9th, but not over 18 years of age by August 14th.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
