Earth Conservation Corps

Bill Moyers had a great program on PBS this evening about the Earth Conservation Corps. From their website:


To empower our endangered youth to reclaim the Anacostia River, their communities, and their lives.

Our Outcomes

In 2005 Corps members completed 54,500 hours of service, providing school standards-based environmental education and service opportunities to 4,987 youth and adults."

How much creativity and planning would it take to create a similar program centered around the Ridgewood Reservoir?
