Minnesota has a summer program called the Minnesota Conservation Corps. this is a summer program for youth and young adults that involves outdoor service and firefighting. they live on site in the areas that they work at. this is run by the Minnesota DNR forestry, i don’t know if other states have programs like this. the web site is www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/mcc/index.html.â€¨i hope this helps you out-good luck
Good idea. The links to all the other state departments of natural resources and forestry are on the links page under state. You could browse them for similar programs.
