Corpsmembers have numerous special opportunities in the CCC, working on backcountry trails, joining an exchange crew in Australia, improving fish habitat in cold streams and creeks, building in state parks, or participating in an AmeriCorps/CCC program.
The California Conservation Corps is legislatively mandated to respond to natural or manmade disasters in California. Corpsmembers have assisted with a variety of emergencies, including fires, floods, oil spills, earthquakes, and agricultural emergencies.
The CCC develops and administers special state programs and grants that fund projects related to climate adaptation and resiliency, active transportation, forest health management, and more. Local, state, and non-profit agencies can partner with the CCC to address critical needs facing the state.
