Focus Areas

  • Environment

Nevada Conservation Corps harnesses the energy and idealism of youth to meet the needs of Nevada public lands and communities.

  • About Us
    The Nevada Conservation Corps is one of several programs managed by the Great Basin Institute. NCC provides valuable resource management services throughout the intermountain western region of the United States in the form of Conservation & Restoration Crews as well as Agency Interns and Field Technicians.

    Our trail program assists agencies with trail layout, construction, and maintenance projects, including the construction of major trail features (e.g. bridges, culverts, stairs, and retaining walls, etc.). In addition to constructing new trail, the NCC has worked closely with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association and the USFS to maintain existing recreational trails and improve upon their quality by upgrading erosion control structures, clearing trail corridors, repairing tread, and rebuilding rock structures.

    The NCC saw program provides safe, high-quality forestry support with certified sawyers and professional-level equipment. Our experienced fuels crews are self-contained and offer a complete range of services from timber stand inventorying and chemical applications to on-site chipping and biomass removal.

    The NCC arid land, fire and riparian restoration teams offer a wide range of assistance for desert, forest and wetlands rehabilitation initiatives. NCC crews are experienced with reseeding, planting, and revegetation techniques, and restoring disturbed areas. Crews now travel throughout the state, restoring Sage-grouse and desert tortoise habitats, eradicating invasive plants, removing illegal wilderness roads, and planting and reseeding thousands of native species to mitigate fire and human caused disturbances.
  • Our Impact
    The increasing demand for NCC services attests to our successes, while underscoring the ongoing need for a Corps program in Nevada to aid in the recovery of species. Our program's focus is now largely centered on demonstrating successful conservation actions, thereby supporting and building stakeholder consensus, and fostering an environment in which agencies, private industry, and the general public may agree upon viable strategies that reconcile the competing demands of environmental stewardship and economic development
