The experience can vary from backpacking to remote locations to build a bridge, to surveying invasive species in a wildland fire burn scar.

Positions generally run from April through mid-October with varied start/end dates. Compensation varies by position ranging from $525-$900/week for the Conservation Corps and Youth Corps.
