During its 20 years of operation, eleven-thousand young people have helped make Wisconsin's outdoors more enjoyable.
They've built trails for all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles and cross-country skiers. They've constructed fish cribs in northern Wisconsin lakes and planted seedlings.
The job program was open to young people 18 to 25. They were paid a minimum wage and could earn education vouchers.
W-C-C alumni now work as park rangers, conservation wardens and county foresters.
Many of its workers are youths who dropped out of high school or were in trouble with the law.
