In another creative private-public partnership, Waders in the Water (WitW) graduates from the New Jersey Youth Corps Phillipsburg partnered with the New Jersey Audubon and the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority/Wallkill River Watershed Management Group to work with private landowners in the Highlands region to restore habitat and improve water quality. The planting project will help reduce excess phosphorous, considered by the EPA, “one of America’s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems.”
Graduates have participated in the WitW interactive, webinar-delivered training that instructs students in:
- Common industry tools, techniques, and processes
- Workplace safety
- Proven, Practical, & Innovative Habitat Enhancement
Certified graduates have a path to projects, jobs, and careers in the $10B/Yr. restoration economy and certified corps are better positioned to participate in the growing number of Public-private Restoration partnerships
