"Leading our Nations back to ecological and cultural well-being"

Program and Position Summary:

Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps (ALCC) engages motivated young adults, ages 18 - 30, to complete challenging and impactful conservation and service projects throughout the western United States. Projects may include trail construction & maintenance, habitat improvement, hazardous fuels reduction, re-vegetation, historic preservation, and local environmental service projects. ALCC provides opportunities for members to learn about and connect with the environment, issues surrounding conservation, and local Indigenous values.

ALCC crews work in a variety of National Parks, National Forests, and other public areas. Selected members are placed on a crew which will then collaborate to perform project work. ALCC is a non-residential program and does not offer housing. Gear and equipment rental is available upon request.

The hiking club was created for kids ranging from 3rd-5th grade to have access to the outdoor to explore and create a connection/memory with each other while creating a deeper understanding and relationship with our ancestral lands and lifeways.
