A year in the CCC impacts far more than your resume. It can transform the way you see the world. Chantelle Beltran grew up in Calexico not ever seeing a forest covered hillside or a pristine mountain lake. Then she joined the Cs where she spent multi-night spikes camped out on Loon Lake to help rebuild a SMUD trail through Desolation Wilderness. What she saw, touched, even smelled changed her life and perhaps her family’s lives for good and for the better.
