Partnering  with SCC

SCC partners are provided time-tested opportunities to accomplish critical conservation projects while providing young adults from the regional community an opportunity to learn about land management issues and challenges. Partnering becomes a win/win situation for the community, SCC members, and land managers, all while SCC partners attain project goals. With minimal supervision or support, SCC has a successful 15-year track record of completing conservation projects throughout New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and the U.S.

“The crews were courteous and friendly, also hard-working. The leaders, as always, were professional, business-like, and yet friendly and  personable. Everything was well-organized and the crew efficiently tackled each job that was assigned. I highly commend the Southwest Conservation Corps for its dependable and dedicated work crews and leadership.”
