KCD partners with the Mt. Adams Institute to sponsor veterans through their VetWorks Environmental Program. This program offers military veterans an eleven-month career development internship in the natural resources management, public lands, and environment sector. KCD placements have gained working knowledge in farm-services, forestry, and riparian restoration among other things. This valuable training offers Mt. Adams Institute placements the skills they need to jumpstart their civilian careers.
After serving 5 years with the NAVY, Kevin Watson joined KCD through the VetsWorks Environment Program as a Farm Services Projects Coordinator.
“KCD has been amazing, like one big family. Having Michael Mendez, a fellow Mt. Adams intern, working at KCD with me has been great.” You can read more of Kevin’s story in his own words on the Mt. Adams Institute blog.
