In the spring and fall ACLCs work in the Home Energy and Water Conservation Projects installing energy/water saving measures in low-income homes while educating residents about environmental and financial benefits of using less energy. Summer is spent outdoors assuming advanced leadership roles for seasonal crews that employ local youth ages 18-24. ACLCs and their crews complete physically demanding land conservation projects in state and local parks, mountain areas, and national forests including fire mitigation, trail building, noxious weed removal, and landscaping. They actively participate in and facilitate weekly environmental education and team building activities, plan and lead service projects, and work towards future career goals with career readiness training.
