LaCC and TXCC Crew Members out in the field!

Are you interested in gaining experience in disaster mitigation, habitat restoration, trail projects, and disaster relief?

Louisiana Conservation Corps (LaCC) participants engage in hands-on conservation projects on public lands, coastal regions, National Parks and recreational areas across the Central Southern United States. The Conservation Corps experience builds leadership skills, connection with community, and prepares young people with skills needed to enter the workforce with a strong work ethic and sense of service!

Conservation & Disaster Crews: These crews are focused on conservation projects in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Texas. Crew Leaders and Members complete habitat restoration and trail projects with a variety of partners. Though most of the season will consist of conservation projects, these crews remain on-call and able to deploy should a flood, fire, hurricane, or other disasters occur. LaCC is both a state and federal resource during disasters, and leaders receive training in spontaneous volunteer management, donations management, and the Incident Command System.

This is a temporary term-based AmeriCorps position that specifically focuses on gaining experience in disaster mitigation, habitat restoration, trail projects, and disaster relief. We highly recommend researching more about AmeriCorps programs and Louisiana Conservation Corps in advance.
