Vet hiring-CA Conservation Corps

SB Approved. I am not affiliated. A friend who works for the USFS sent it to me to pass on to any vets I may know.

__________________________________________________ _

The California Conservation Corps has a few positions still available for military veterans interested in serving on a new fisheries crew based in Humboldt County.

Veterans between the ages of 18 and 27 may apply for the one-year positions that provide paid training. Applicants must have an honorable discharge or general discharge with honorable conditions. National Guard members with part-time status may also be eligible.

The crew's work will include fish habitat restoration and monitoring in coastal watersheds in Humboldt, Mendocino and Del Norte counties. The veterans will receive technical training to aid them doing spawning, habitat, topographical and diving surveys. They'll also be involved in collecting data to measure the effectiveness of habitat restoration techniques.

The fisheries projects are funded by the CCC and by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which is also providing training and education. Additional training as well as project locations will be provided by the Department of Fish and Game. Through their experience on the fisheries crew, veterans may gain entry to jobs with local, state and federal resource agencies.

Deadline for applications is November 30. Those interested should contact CCC Fortuna Center Director Larry Notheis for details, at (707) 725-5106, or email

The California Conservation Corps is a state agency in which young men and women sign up for a year of natural resource work and emergency response. Since the CCC was established in 1976, its crews have improved more than 1800 miles of salmon and steelhead habitat along coastal rivers and streams.
