Description

APPLY ON UCC.USU.EDU/APPLY
River Restoration Crew Members will spend three months working and living outdoors as part of a Utah Conservation Corps crew in service to public lands along the White and/or the Colorado River. Crew Members are responsible for being a contributing member of their crew, upholding and abiding by UCC policies & procedures, and conducting themselves in a safe and productive manner. All crew members are trained in safe and proper tool use, safe herbicide handling and application, project specific techniques, river and raft safety, outdoor living and wilderness first aid. Crews will complete projects on and near the White and/or Colorado River related to habitat restoration and invasive species removal. Weekly project schedules are variable, where crews work 4-10 days in a row and then get off time proportional to the amount of time they have been in the field. Crews spend full-days working outdoors doing physically demanding work. Crews typically camp during the project week and return to their base field office for off-time.
