For the second year in a row, Green River Community College is offering a special conservation training program for veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The program, coordinated by the Veterans Conservation Corps (VCC), focuses on Green River’s natural resources program and allows participants to study water technology, Geographic Information Systems or natural resources.
Last year, veterans worked with governmental agencies on habitat restoration projects. A wildlife and vegetation project on the Duwamish River earned VCC the Coastal America 2007 Partnership Award.
Registration for fall quarter has begun, a college spokesman said. Participating veterans may qualify for tuition and a monthly stipend for living expenses.
