POSITION DESCRIPTION

Crew Members spend three or six months working and living outdoors as part of a Utah Conservation Corps field crew in service to public lands and the communities that surround them. Crew Members are responsible for being a contributing member of their crew, upholding and abiding by UCC policies & procedures, and conducting themselves in a safe and productive manner. All crew members are trained in safe and proper tool use, project techniques, and outdoor living. Training topics include chainsaw and hand tool use, project techniques, and basic wilderness first aid. Crews complete projects on Utah's public lands related to habitat restoration, invasive species removal, fence construction, trail constructions or forest fire fuels reduction. Weekly project schedules are variable, where crews work 4-10 days in a row and receive time off proportional to the amount of time spent in the field. Crews spend 8-12 hour days serving on physically demanding projects in the outdoors.

Crews typically camp during the project week and return to their field office location to begin their off-time. This position is an AmeriCorps term of service that requires a full-time commitment.

Utah Conservation Corps arranges for camping and travel during project time and supplies all tools and safety equipment and uniform tops. Crew Members must provide their own work boots, work pants, and personal camping gear. Crew members are responsible for purchasing their own food on and off project time. Members are also responsible for lodging and transportation during off time.
