60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: Shout Out to Washington State Conservation Corps.
by Diane Wyzga | March 17, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Here’s a shout out to the men and women of the Washington State Conservation Corps. I met CJ from Colorado working trail maintenance at South Whidbey State Park. He set aside his chain saw to chat a bit about the corps, his service, his dream to fight wildfires.
Having worked on a few trails as a member of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust I can say this is rigorous, physical work that doesn’t stop for the rain. We hike beautiful trails because young men, women and veterans are caring for them.
My hike in our 347-acre state park on the shoreline of Admiralty Inlet was made all the better by a chance to stand in the forest of a sunny afternoon and listen to this young man’s story.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!
