Rappahannock refuge has some summer jobs for teens
The Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge is looking for a few teens who want an outside summer job. Its Youth Conservation Corps program is open to applicants 15 to 18 years old, who are interested in outdoor work and natural resources. Projects may include building and improving trails, removing invasive plants and contributing to wildlife management programs. The pay is $7.25 an hour. The eight-week program runs from mid-June to mid-August.
