Working with land management agencies to complete projects that impact the environment is one of the main ways that participants learn about Skamania County and the environment. Project sponsors work along side participants to gain first hand knowledge about the importance of their project. Throughout the summer crews work on a variety of projects. Some of the projects have included trail restoration, new trail creation, habitat restoration, noxious weed removal, and many more.
The work that FYS has completed over the years has helped maintain, protect, and transform Skamania County. Participants can return to many project sites years later to admire their hard work and share their experiences with other. For many participants FYS is one of the first times they have had the opportunity to take pride in their accomplishments. They are able to transfer the sense of satisfaction and pride in a job well done to situations for the rest of their lives.
All of this hard work helps participants develop valuable and transferable skills they can apply to school, family, sports, and future employment.
