The Placer Center
With a Sacramento Location

The Placer Center has a rich history as a CCC center, going back to 1978 when it was one of eight fire centers jointly operated with CAL FIRE.  Located in the Sierra foothills off Interstate 80, on the east side of Auburn, an average of 80 corpsmembers are based at the residential center.


In 1984 the Placer Center became the combined Energy Center for the CCC, incorporating its E-Con, weatherization and solar programs.  The Construction Unit was added in 1996 and currently provides about half of Placer’ work. The remaining crews focus on a variety of natural resource projects for many federal, state and local agencies.

Project Portfolio
Projects for the Placer Center fall under one of two categories: construction or resources.  Corpsmembers learn to use a variety of tools and hone their job skills through dozens of projects throughout the year.
