CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks are looking for a few good teens to take part in this year's Youth Conservation Program.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1fg8Yxa ) the Grand Teton program for high school students between the ages of 16 and 19 will begin June 16 and end Aug. 21. The Yellowstone program is for participants between the ages of 15 and 18. It offers two, monthlong sessions — one from June 8 to July 9, and the other from July 13 to Aug. 13.
