JOB DESCRIPTION

Conservation Corps North Bay (CCNB) was the first local conservation corps in the country, founded in 1982. Throughout the years, corpsmembers at CCNB have built and maintained miles of trails, removed tons of non-native and fire-hazard vegetation, cleared creeks of obstructions for flood control, restored riparian and terrestrial habitats, removed thousands of pounds of trash from local creeks and open space and collected and recycled thousands of pounds of materials throughout the entire county. Over 3000 corpsmembers have been through CCNB's program since its inception. Today corpsmembers continue this work for most of the resource agencies across Marin County.
