Fake fumes, fire and fractures: Glimpse into this year's WCC environmental training

By Laura Schlabach, WCC Outreach and Development Coordinator

Twice a year, Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) Crews and Individual Placements come together from all across the state for annual trainings in a variety of environmental topics.

Trainings are intended to equip Corps Members for future employment in the environmental field, giving them exposure, experience, and certifications to add to their resume. Courses include Wildland Fire, Hazwoper, Rigging Applications, Ethnobotany, Search and Rescue, and Wilderness First Responder.
