About Utah Conservation Corps
UCC is an AmeriCorps program made up of members, staff, and partners dedicated to service to our community and environment. We engage in projects throughout the state of Utah that address goals relating to environmental conservation, leadership, education, and sustainability.
UCC AmeriCorps members have committed to a term of service for their country that may range from 3 months to a year. Our members are individuals seeking opportunities to give back, to improve the environment and explore the beauty of Utah's public lands. Many of our members are current students or recent graduates looking to gain experience in the fields of natural resource conservation, education, or social services.
Utah Conservation Corps is a program of Utah State University's Center for Civic Engagement & Service Learning.
What We Do
UCC offers service opportunities working on a conservation field crew or through individual placement with one of our non-profit or government agency partners.
AmeriCorps members placed on a field crew work on natural resource projects (habitat restoration, trail maintenace, fence building, etc.) alongside four to eight other members. UCC Americorps individual placement members are active in environmental education, habitat restoration, and community volunteer efforts. ]
