Today we kicked off the 10th year of Lomakatsi’s Ashland Watershed Youth Ecological Training & Employment Program! Through a competitive application process, 15 juniors and seniors from high schools around the Rogue Valley were selected for this year’s crew. They’ll spend the next 4 weeks gaining hands-on experience in forest and aquatic restoration, working on collaborative landscape-scale projects including The Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project and West Bear All-Lands Restoration Project (with Rogue Forest Partners). Along the way, they’ll learn about careers in natural resources through presentations by Lomakatsi staff and our many amazing partners.
