can you see yourself working outdoors?

Update: In an effort to streamline administrative processes for the WCC program, applicants and interested parties should visit Ecology's website for additional work-related information and eligibility, as well as electronic applications.

One week, you might be maintaining a forest campground or a fishing access area, the next you might be working in a state Wildlife Area or a Natural Area Preserve, and the next you might be rebuilding a trail or fighting a forest fire. Whatever the project, you will be able to look back at the end of the week, tired and sore, and know that your efforts have made a positive change on the face of the land.

The Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) was established in 1983 and is modeled after the original Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s.

Today, the WCC Program provides an opportunity for young adults (18 to 25) to be a part of the National Service movement while making a difference right here in Washington State.

If you’re up for the challenge, serving a term in the WCC Program can be one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences of your life.

Cooperative Program
DNR, Ecology, and the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) have joined forces to operate a cooperative Washington Conservation Corps Program. Members serve on small teams within geographic working circles that complete projects for all agencies.

WCC Mission
To conserve and enhance the natural resources of Washington and to help young adults enrich themselves by providing a meaningful work and service experience.
