COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) – U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell is visiting Colorado to make an announcement about youth jobs on federal public lands.

Jewell will unveil the plan during a visit to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge outside Denver on Thursday. The former head of REI will be joined by representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and will also participate in a service project.

The announcement is part of Jewell’s plan to get young people from all kinds of backgrounds and communities more involved in the outdoors.
