Thurston County Announces Pilot Program for Youth Groups


Thurston County Stream Team is pleased to announce a pilot WIN! (Work Involvement Now!)program. Based on the highly successful City of Lacey WIN! Program, Thurston County youth groups can apply for an opportunity to complete a service project and thus earn a $300 stipend. Groups must have a minimum of eight youth participants, ages eight to 18 with sufficient adult leadership to be eligible to apply. This program is available to non-profit youth groups who are able to provide a minimum of 40 total hours of participation. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 11, 2012. For more information and to obtain an application, contact Stream Team at maunc@co.thurstonwa.us or (360)754-3355 ext.6377.

This is a pilot program intended to encourage youth groups to help protect local water resources, including area creeks, streams, parks and Puget Sound. Typical projects will involve spreading wood chips, removing invasive weeds, marking storm drains and planting native trees and shrubs. Tools and supplies are provided by the county. Projects typically take place on Saturdays.
