Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) members gain hands-on skills in environmental restoration, trail construction, environmental education, and disaster response. The WCC has 51 crews (5 members and 1 supervisor) and 16 individual placement members located at project sites throughout the state. WCC members can take advantage of valuable networking opportunities through our collaboration with various governmental and non-profit organizations.
In addition to acquiring hands-on skills, members are offered excellent formal training opportunities, many of which result in a certification. Training courses include Wilderness Advanced First Aid and Wilderness First Responder, Swiftwater Rescue and Safety Ropes, Wildland Firefighting/Red Card, Hazardous Materials Response and more.
