Young men and women from throughout Butte County are a part of the California Conservation Corps’ Chico Satellite, a nonresidential facility with about 50 corpsmembers on three crews. A satellite of the Redding Center, the Chico Satellite was established in 1998. The Satellite does a broad variety of natural resource work with Caltrans, California State Parks, the Dept. of Water Resources, the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, the City of Chico and the U.S. Forest Service.
The Chico Satellite is also home to the John Muir Charter School, assisting corpsmembers who aren’t high school graduates in earning their diplomas.
