Corpsmembers will find themselves tackling a range of projects, from working on the beach with beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean to working trails in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Los Padres National Forest and along the Big Sur coast.
The Monterey Bay Center's natural resource projects include trail rehabilitation, trail construction, fire hazard reduction, tree-planting, native plant restoration, landscaping, park development and minor construction. Center projects take place primarily in Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, although projects from one end of the state to the other are not uncommon.
The fundamental concept in the center's success has been building and maintaining relationships with local land management groups and city, county, state and federal agencies. These relationships have led to long-lasting partnerships that keep the CCC actively involved in successful resource enhancement projects.
The CCC has local partnerships with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, California State Parks, the Big Sur Land Trust, Hollister Hills State Vehicular Recreation Area, Watsonville Wetlands Watch, Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, Resource Conservation Districts and Central Coast Energy Services.
