Duluth Stream Corps

Why not help people develop job skills while cleaning up the environment?  This is what they're doing in Duluth, Minnesota with the Duluth Stream Corps. Thanks to a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) job skills are being developed while restoring habitat along Duluth's streams.

This program is modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps that put three million young people to work back in the 1930s.  Why not put people to work that would otherwise be receiving welfare or unemployment benefits?  It's a win-win!
