Conservation Corps North Bay

Conservation Corps North Bay (CCNB) was established in 1982 as America’s first local conservation corps and is a national leader in the local corps movement.  Our mission is to develop youth and conserve natural resources for a strong, sustainable community. For the past 28 years, our organization has helped thousands of young people break the cycle of poverty, while improving local parklands and communities, cultivating strong environmental leaders, and promoting environmental sustainability.

Each year our Corpsmember Development program provides more than 120 predominantly high-risk young adults, ages 18–28, with the job training, education, and social services needed to transform their lives, while making a difference in local communities and public lands. Our corpsmembers help reduce fire/flood hazards, construct/maintain trails, restore riparian/wildlife habitat, and collect more than 75 tons of recyclable materials annually.
