]: 8 The GlenviUe Democrat/Pathfinder June 3, 1976 House passage of young adult conservation announced Congressman John Slack an- nounced passage by the House recently of the Young Adult Conservation Act. The Act authorizes creation of a year-round program designed to provide employment and other benefits for young adults, while at the same time reducing the backlog of conservation and other work projects which currently exist on the public lands and waters of the United States. The legislation would provide for eligible young people to be employed in such areas as erosion control and flood damage projects, recreation develop- ment, campground improvements, reforestation and forest insect disease control. The work projects in the national parks and forests would be administered by the Departments of Interior and Agriculture, respectively. The legislation creating the Young Adult Conservation Corps would complement the 1970 Youth Conserva- tion Corps program and could employ over 1 million young people in the next four years," Slack said. The overall unemployment rate tl 0  for young adults in the 20-24 age group was close to 14% during 1975 according to Department of Labor statistics. "At the same time these .  people are unemployed, numerous projects which need to be undertaken are being left alone. For example, the Forest Service has a reforestation backlog of approximately 3 million acres. If these acres are not reseeded W. VA. DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS Equipmenr Division, Buckhannon, W. Va.

Also, various national park lands and facilities around the country need to be cleaned up and upgraded. As parks have expanded, funding and manpower shortages have made for deteriorating conditions in some instances," Slack explained. "Past assessments of the 1970 Youth Conservation Corps program indicate a 75% return on every dollar appropriated in terms of work accomplished by the program. Right now there is every reason to believe that the Ymmg Adt Conservation Corps under this new act can accomplish the same results," Slack concluded.
