Conservation Legacy aims to continue the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s and is focused on connecting youth, young adults and recent-era military veterans with conservation and service work projects on public lands and in local communities. Our programs promote personal growth, experiential learning and an ethic of natural resource stewardship, along with hard work.
Conservation Legacy's strengths lie not only in service project accomplishments, but also in the ability to provide a viable work force while offering exceptional educational and development opportunities to a diverse group of participants.
If you have a project in mind and would like to work with a Conservation Legacy crew or individual placement please visit our Project Partner page.
Interested in seeing how your organization or company can connect with Conservation Legacy or one of its programs? Partnering opportunities include but are not limited to: financial support, providing gear, assisting in marketing or outreach activities, supporting individuals or project work such as construction of a high profile trail, protection of a key river corridor or enhancement of a wildlife habitat area.

"Conservation crews are an essential part of carrying out the missions of land management agencies... We're so thankful for crews that are able to dedicate weeks of their lives to come out here. And I'm sure they’re aware, but their work is so significant - this community is going to be thankful for them for decades to come. Conservation crews are the unsung heroes a lot of the time!" - Edna Flores, BLM Las Cruces, NM
