WCC is based out of Laramie, WY and all projects will begin and end here. WCC serves the entire state of Wyoming for projects.
As a crew member for the Wyoming Conservation Corps, you have the ability to learn new skills, work in reclamation, live outside, and experience Wyoming's greatness to its fullest.
The position lasts from May through August. You'll work for several different organizations on public and private lands including trail building, reclamation, pine beetle mitigation, wildlife fencing, and historical restorations.
Benefits for this position include an AmeriCorps scholarship after the completion of 450 hours of service, a living stipend, one upper division ENR credit and experience.
As a crew leader you can take your Wyoming Conservation Corps experience to the next level. If you have a passion to lead and have outdoor experience, then becoming a crew leader is for you!
The position requires a commitment from January through August. As a crew leader, you'll attend a winter WCC course for credit through the ENR department, receive your Wilderness First Responder Certification, lead six crew leaders on hitches throughout the summer, receive three upper division credits and receive an AmeriCorps scholarship for 900 hours of service.
This position is for military veterans only. As a member of the Wyoming Veterans Trail Crew (WyVTC), you will learn the ins and outs of trail to both Forest Service (USFS) standards and International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) while working on the public lands of Wyoming.
The position will begin in May, either early May if selected for crew leader or mid-May if a crew member, and work into October individually completing 900 hours of service for public lands. Members and leaders should also plan on having excused absences from work or school for 5 days in April to attend the s-212 chainsaw certification with the other members.
If you were not able to become a crew member or leader, you are still able to make a difference! We are always open to volunteers coming out to help us during the summer! Please contact us if you are interested.
