Description

POSITION OVERVIEW & TRAINING
UCC is an AmeriCorps program composed of AmeriCorps members, staff, and partners dedicated to
service to our community, environment, and regions requiring disaster response efforts. We engage in
projects throughout the state of Utah and the Intermountain West that address goals relating to resource
conservation, stewardship, and sustainability.
UCC Field Crew Members spend 3 to 6 months working and living outdoors as part of a Utah
Conservation Corps crew in service to public lands and the communities that surround them. 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. Crews complete
projects related to habitat restoration, invasive species removal, fence construction, trail construction or
hazardous fuels reduction. All crew members are trained in safe and proper tool use, project techniques,
and outdoor living. Training topics may include chainsaw and hand tool use, project techniques, and first
aid.
Utah Conservation Corps arranges for camping and travel during training and project time and supplies
all tools and safety equipment and uniform shirts. Crew Members must provide their own work boots,
work pants, and personal camping gear. Crew Members receive a living allowance for buying their own
food for project time and off time and arranging for housing and transportation during off time. This
position is an AmeriCorps term of service that requires a full-time commitment (45-50+ hours per week).
PROJECTS & SCHEDULE
UCC field crews are assigned to a variety of conservation-related projects across Utah and the
intermountain west. Projects may be backcountry (hiking into project site, camping away from vehicle) or
front country (driving to project site daily, camping at vehicle, or possibility of non-camping
accommodations provided). Projects may be urban (located in a city or town) or rural (located in national
parks, forests, etc. with limited access to facilities and resources).
Project work may vary due to seasonality and environmental safety concerns. Projects may include (but
are not limited to):
• Trail construction and maintenance
• Invasive species management, including herbicide application
• Habitat restoration
• Fence installation/repair
• Land Management Inventory and Mapping
• Fire fuels reduction
• National Disaster Response efforts
• Community service
• Recreation and facilities maintenance and construction
• Recreation signage repair
Every crew will have unique project and travel schedules. Generally, crews work a 9-day or 4-day,10-
hours/day (some days may be up to 12 hours/day) ‘hitch’ schedule, while camping in front and
backcountry settings. Typically, crews will have 5 days off or 3 days off in the town of the home base
office. There may be instances when the hitch schedule does not allow for the previously listed number of
days off between hitches, or crews may be required to have off days near their project location. Crews are
respectfully asked to remain flexible regarding hitch and time off scheduling. Crews should expect project
schedules and project work to vary. Days will include two 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute lunch.
This position could also be deployed for national disaster relief, outside of the region, for multiple weeks
at a time.
GENERAL INFORMATION
UCC is a non-residential program. Participants must supply their own personal outdoor gear and
equipment such as a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, day pack, multi-day pack, work pants, work boots,
etc. A recommended gear-list will be provided prior to starting the term of service. UCC will provide
project tools, personal protective gear, crew kitchen kit (stove, fuel, cooking and serving supplies) and
transportation to and from projects. UCC participants are eligible for pro-deals.
