This experience will be the story you remember forever.
UCC Fall Crew Members will work and live in the outdoors as part of a field crew in service to public lands and the communities that surround them. Field crews are assigned to a variety of conservation-related projects throughout Utah and the Intermountain West. They may be deployed (on hitch) anywhere from 4 to 15 consecutive days. Workdays range from 8–12-hours depending on the project, travel, and time of year. Workdays also include two 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute lunch. Additionally, members should expect project schedules and project work to vary.
Typically, crews have 3 to 5 days off in the town of the home base field office. Note: 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 schedules.
Projects may be urban, backcountry (hiking into the project site, camping away from the vehicle), or front country (driving to the project site daily, camping at the vehicle, or with the possibility of non-camping accommodations provided). Weather is variable, and work and campsites can range from 2,000-13,000 feet in elevation. This position is an AmeriCorps term of service that requires a full-time commitment (about 45 hours per week).
Project work may vary due to seasonality and environmental safety concerns. Projects may include (but are not limited to):
Other: This position could also be deployed for national disaster relief, outside of the region, for multiple weeks at a time.
This is an entry-level position. All crew members will be trained in safe and proper tool use and maintenance, project techniques and management, backcountry, and outdoor living. Training topics may include chainsaw and hand tool use, project techniques, and first aid.
This is collaborative work; members will learn to work as a team in areas they might otherwise not have visited, and with people, they may have otherwise not met. They will also have the opportunity to network with project partners, therefore, developing possible future employment opportunities.
