As a federally-funded AmeriCorps program, the NCC promotes ecological literacy through field research and direct conservation service. By uniting resources from federal, state, and county agencies, the NCC provides young professionals the opportunity to make meaningful contributions toward protecting and conserving Nevada’s natural heritage while gaining valuable work experience in the conservation field. Position Description: As a NCC crew member, you will live and work in some of Nevada’s premiere outdoor recreation and wilderness areas.

Led by a Crew Leader who has passed through the NCC’s extensive Leadership Development Program, you will work alongside other members from across the country who share a common passion for conservation and the outdoors. The NCC strives to contribute real and meaningful improvements to Nevada’s public lands, and as such our crew related work focuses on on-the-ground implementation of conservation projects. As a member you will be in the field, swinging tools, planting plants, and getting your hands dirty every day of service. The NCC is looking for members that understand the value of hard work and are ready to get in the field and get things done. To facilitate a safe and successful conservation experience, the NCC puts all members through an extensive, week-long orientation where they receive training in technical skills related to trail building and land restoration practices, while obtaining certifications in Leave No Trace ethics and CPR/First Aid.
