BLM UT Youth Opportunities to work on Conservation Project throughout UT Public Lands: BLM, over the past few years, has promoted opportunities in which youth gain land management experience by working with land managers on various projects. BLM Utah has been very successful in providing opportunities for youth to be engaged in conservation projects throughout the State of Utah. Such programs educate and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders. BLM is committed to the Americas Great Outdoor initiative, which our agency already supports through programs that expose young people from all walks of life to the wonders of natural resources. Through programs that reconnect our Nations youth to the great outdoors, new generations are discovering the health benefits that come with being outside and active. They are also learning the importance of conserving and protecting the incredibly valuable outdoor resources our public lands have to offer present and future Americans. Project Objective: BLM Utah has youth funding available to work with youth organizations and conservation corps for the purposes of introducing youth ages 16 to 25 year of age to careers in the BLM and help fulfil our mission. BLM is interested in working with youth to complete conservation projects that enhance the students classroom learning by providing them opportunities to gain experience, learn about public lands, further their understanding and appreciation of natural and cultural resources, and pique their interest in natural resource careers. Young men and women who participate in the rehabilitation and restoration of our nations natural, cultural, historic, archaeological, recreational, comprehensive environmental field studies and service programs that advance ecological literacy, conservation, and environmental research in the areas of public land restoration, forestry, and trail work and scenic treasures will gain an increased appreciation and understanding of our public lands and of the value of public service, and are likely to become life-long advocates for those values. The youth will be provided with education and work opportunities that provide comprehensive environmental field studies and service programs that advance ecological literacy, conservation, and environmental research in the areas of public land restoration, forestry, and trail work. Internships and crew work may include, but are not limited to, projects related to archeology, botany, ecology, national landscape conservation system lands, recreation, soils, water, and wildlife. These project may last a couple of weeks for a crew or an internship for a resource assistant to work on a project that may last for a field season.
