Building Healthy Youth, Forest, and Communities
What is Forest Youth Success?
For 10 years FYS has been employing Skamania County youth. During the program workers and mentors develop positive life skills that increase future employability. FYS also teaches the fundamentals of land management, ecology, and responsibility.
Crews spend the summer working alongside resource management professionals assisting them in achieving their infrastructure and ecosystem management objectives.
