Description

Are you interested in gaining experience in disaster mitigation, habitat restoration, trail projects, and disaster relief?

Louisiana Conservation Corps (LaCC) participants engage in hands-on conservation projects on public lands, coastal regions, National Parks and recreational areas across the Central Southern United States. The Conservation Corps experience builds leadership skills, connection with community, and prepares young people with skills needed to enter the workforce with a strong work ethic and sense of service!

Conservation & Disaster Crews: These crews are focused on conservation projects in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Texas. Crew Leaders and Members complete habitat restoration and trail projects with a variety of partners. Though most of the season will consist of conservation projects, these crews remain on-call and able to deploy should a flood, fire, hurricane, or other disasters occur. LaCC is both a state and federal resource during disasters, and leaders receive training in spontaneous volunteer management, donations management, and the Incident Command System.

Our Louisiana Conservation Corps, based in Baton Rouge, completes conservation projects for a variety of partners. Members will typically work a 10 days on and 4 days off schedule: leaving on a Monday, and coming back the following Wednesday. At the beginning of the week, the crew will go grocery shopping and purchase food with a budget provided by LaCC. The crews will then work, camp, eat, and live together until the end of their 10 day work cycle. For local project site’s, crews will work a regular 8-5pm, Monday-Friday schedule. During projects, the crews will get to and from their project sites using our vehicles, driven by the crew leaders.
