Serve outdoors on a WCC field crew

Our Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) crews consist of five AmeriCorps members led by a crew supervisor. We have three crew types: restoration, trail, and spike. Our restoration crews improve habitat for fish and wildlife. Trail crews complete recreational projects on public lands. Spike crews travel around the state to complete short-term restoration or recreation projects for our partner agencies and organizations.

Restoration Crews

Our restoration crews serve on public lands to improve habitat for fish and wildlife. Typical projects include:

  • Planting native trees and shrubs along rivers and streams
  • Removing invasive species
  • Implementing erosion control techniques
  • Participating in salmon recovery projects
  • Establishing in-stream structures and channels
  • Constructing livestock exclusionary fencing
  • Collecting marine debris from coastal beaches
