Los Padres Corpsmembers Finding Their Futures with Forestry Corps
Corpsmembers at the CCC Los Padres Center have traded in their warehouse, retail, and chain restaurant jobs for chaps, chain saws, and a new perspective of future career pathways. They’re doing their part to remove invasive species in places like Montaña de Oro State Park in San Luis Obispo County. The work will allow for native species to thrive and reduce fire danger. For the Corpsmembers, it’s hands-on experience in the field and in the classroom that has them seeing future forestry careers.
