28. - Develop and fund a hunting access and conservation program within the Youth Conservation Corps

Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 29

Led by AmeriCorps, federal agencies will work with sportsmen’s organizations including outdoor-oriented youth and minorities’ organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the Student Conservation Association to provide opportunities for teens to perform a summer of service working in a natural resources field under the supervision of mentor volunteers. The program, which will be developed in partnership with existing programs such as Ducks Unlimited “Project Webfoot” and US Sportsmen’s Alliance “Families Afield” program will be initiated by volunteers from the sportsmen’s community and federal agencies, who have undertaken appropriate screening and training, who will recruit and lead teams that undertake trail, signage, and habitat conservation projects designed to enhance and improve wildlife dependent recreation and conserve wildlife habitat.
