A Redding Center Corpsmember checks to see if the hole for a new oak tree is the correct size before planting at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area in Shasta County.

Three years after the Carr Fire, the scorched ground of Shasta County is still trying to recover.

Our CCC Redding Corpsmembers are helping to revive areas near campsites at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.

Planting native species is bringing multiple benefits to this popular and scenic spot.

It’s also giving Redding Corpsmembers—nearby residents—the chance to help their own community return to normal, while developing skills at the same.
