AmeriCorps Program Overview – Better the land – Better yourself!
The Southwest Conservation Corps Ancestral Lands engages motivated young adults, ages 18 - 30, to complete challenging and impactful conservation and service projects throughout Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Projects may include, trail construction & maintenance, habitat improvement, hazardous fuels reduction, re-vegetation and local environmental service projects. Crews may also complete technical and/or specialized projects depending on project partner needs, including disaster relief if the opportunity arises.
Each crew will consist of 3 members and 2 leaders. Crews work and camp for up to 8 days at a time in frontcountry and backcountry locations in all types of weather conditions. Schedule may vary depending on location and program. SCC crews work in a variety of national parks, national forests and other areas throughout the Southwest. Crews prepare all their own meals and work together as a group to complete all the necessary chores.
Our programs focus on place based learning, life skills development, appreciation of diversity, civic responsibility and career development.
