About Us

The California Conservation Corps is a state agency that puts together young people and the environment, to the benefit of both.

Corpsmembers -- young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 -- sign up for a year of working outdoors to improve California's natural resources.  They also assist with emergency response: fighting fires, floods, earthquakes and pest infestations.
The CCC, modeled after the original Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s, is the oldest and largest conservation corps now in operation.  Created by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. in 1976, more than 120,000 young people have been a part of the CCC since that time.
