Description
IMPORTANT:  This Advertiser has requested that applicants MUST be National Residents / Valid Work Permit-holders.  Other applicants need not apply.

 

Under the mentorship of Nevada Conservation Corps members, the Great Basin Naturalists will build and maintain recreational trails in the Truckee Meadows and regional parks. This collaborative trail work will reduce erosion and sedimentation, protect wildlife habitat through the rerouting of poorly located trails, and encourage a culture of more responsible trail use. We will also restore habitat on land around the Truckee River by removing invasive plants, planting native trees, and mending fences.

Working and living in small crews on local conservation projects will help youth develop skills in environmental restoration work, wilderness first-aid training, leave-no-trace camping, and leadership. Those who serve a summer on a Conservation Crew and successfully manage the work, challenge, and fun are sure to gain a competitive edge for future jobs and college admissions.

Many Nevada Conservation Corps members go on to pursue careers or further education in conservation and resource management. We are confident that high school youth who complete this Great Basin Naturalists program will, likewise, be inspired to pursue post-secondary education and/or careers in environmental conservation.
