The Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) promotes individual development through service for the benefit of our environment and community. Since 1993, the LCCC has addressed two key issues: the persistent challenges youth and young adults face in securing employment and gaining work experience; and the ongoing need to maintain local parks, open spaces and natural lands for the enjoyment of the community. Through conservation projects and environmental education, we empower corpsmembers to become environmental stewards while developing self-sufficiency and work skills to help them become productive members of our community.
To date, the LCCC operates four seasonal programs: AgriCorps, serving ages 14-16, Land Program, serving ages 16-19, Sawyer Program, serving 18-24 and Water & Energy Program, serving ages 18-24. Each of our programs is unique within the corps, but each one reflects our core values of environmental conservation and individual development.
