Perkiomen Watershed Youth Conservation Corps

The Perkiomen Watershed Youth Conservation Corps program is dedicated to furthering the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy’s mission by providing valuable watershed stewardship while fostering a rich and varied conservation-based skill set within each of its members.

 The 2019 PWCC program begins in January and runs through June. Members of the PWCC program are required to attend a minimum of two monthly meetings and participate in four Conservancy service events with the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy. At the conclusion of the program cycle, PWCC members will have the opportunity to participate in the Perki-Bay Expedition, a 50 mile canoeing and camping trip. The idea is that a successful member will have a substantial knowledge and skill base that will enable them to fully engage in the Expedition while promoting the PWC and its mission. Further, successful program participants will possess a greater knowledge and understanding of watershed stewardship that will guide them as they continue their high school and college education.
