Ten students from Grand and San Juan Counties will have the opportunity to work in local national parks this summer as part of the Canyon Country Conservation Corps. Sponsored by the Southeast Utah Group of the National Park Service, the Conservation Corps is entering its tenth summer of operations. Kate Cannon, Superintendent of the Southeast Utah Group, said “We’re always excited to host the Conservation Corps program. This is an excellent use of our visitor fee revenues and we look forward to completing much needed projects and connecting with the youth in our community.” The program is funded entirely through visitor fees.
