YCC Crew Protecting Water Quality Across the Watershed

August 12, 2023

Last week, we wrapped up our 11th Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) season! Our YCC season runs for six weeks from late June to early August, as we complete projects to address erosion problems that threaten water quality. This season we completed 11 projects on six lakes and ponds. Thank you to all the landowners who partnered with us to help improve their waterfront and protect our lakes.
