YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park is recruiting teenagers for its 2012 Youth Conservation Corps Program.

Yellowstone plans to select about 80 teenagers from across the country to participate in the two residential work programs. The park says they're intended to develop an appreciation for the nation's natural resources and heritage through educational, recreational and work experiences.

One program runs from June 10 to July 12 and the other runs from July 15 to Aug. 16.

No previous wilderness experience is required but participants should have a willingness to work in a physically active outdoor program while getting along with others.

Participants live on location and pay a minimal cost for room and board. Wages are $7.25 per hour. Applications are due by March 5.
