Interested Veterans Sought for our Veterans Conservation Corps

In 2017, Snohomish Conservation District began a partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs to host a crew similar to our Washington Conservation Corps crew, but consisting of all veterans. Other partners in this effort included The Nature Conservancy and The Boeing Company.

The Snohomish Conservation District and the Veterans Conservation Corps are always on the look out for Veterans who are interested in working with us on to better our ground.
