In 2014, Coconino Rural Environment Corps and Southwest Conservation Corps Sonoran Desert Region joined to form the Arizona Conservation Corps (AZCC), which now operates conservation service programs across Arizona that empower individuals to positively impact their lives, their communities and the environment. AZCC has program offices in Flagstaff and Tucson.
Arizona Conservation Corps, a program of Conservation Legacy, aims to continue the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s. AZCC is focused on connecting youth, young adults and recent era military veterans with conservation service work projects on public lands. Our programs promote personal growth, experiential learning and an ethic of natural resource stewardship while incorporating the guiding principles of community, dedication, challenge, integrity and FUN!
Spending these days with my crew showed me that despite our differences, whether it be social, cultural or financial, we can do whatever it takes to accomplish different jobs successfully. No one person is too big or too small.
