Utah Conservation Corps (UCC) operates three 12-week field seasons over the course of the year. The spring season is dedicated to development of Crew Leaders through formal training and project work, as well as preparing for our large summer and fall field seasons.
During our summer and fall field seasons Utah Conservation Corps mobilizes multiple 5-person field crews out of three field offices (Logan, Moab, and Cedar City) to address a diversity of conservation efforts on Utah public lands with federal, state, indigenous, and non-profit partners . Crew project work may include habitat restoration, re-vegetation, fence building, trail construction & maintenance, invasive plant removal, forest fuels reductions & other fire mitigation work, habitat surveying, native seed collection, and more.
Service performed by Utah Conservation Corps crews address program goals related to conservation of public lands and member development. UCC crews and project work may focus on specialized objectives. Recent examples of this specialized work include a bike crew (crew members use bikes as their only mode of transportation to/from project sites), and accessibility surveying in the National Forest sites (providing opportunities for people of all abilities to serve and recreate).
The UCC Field Coordinator is responsible for providing direct leadership and support to UCC field crews and working as part of the UCC field staff team to provide seasonal trainings and logistical coordination. The Field Coordinator is an integral member of UCC field operations, ensuring that UCC crews are adequately trained and prepared to perform high quality conservation service in a positive, safe, and productive environment.
The Field Coordinator is expected to provide leadership in support of UCC’s overarching and crew-specific programmatic goals. Support of field crews and operations may include but will not be limited to: working with crews at their project sites, being in the field for multiple days in a row, assisting in training crew leaders and members, performing project site visits, managing logistics, maintaining tools and equipment, working in the field office, and assisting with crew member recruitment efforts.
This position involves frequent travel, camping, irregular hours, and a varying weekly schedule. The Field Coordinator must have strong leadership and communication skills, flexibility, capacity for self-direction, a passion for conservation work, and a desire to provide mentorship to emerging conservation leaders. The Field Coordinator works under the supervision of the Regional Coordinator.
