The Wyoming Conservation Corps’s mission is to promote individual development, stewardship, and education through localized national service.
The WCC is a non-profit dedicated to empowering youth in conservation around Wyoming. What sets the Wyoming Conservation Corps (WCC) apart from nearly all the other conservation corps is that we provide formal university level courses as part of the crew leader’s and member’s training. In the spring, crew leaders participate in upper level undergraduate course 4950-Leadership in Natural Resource Management while our members in the summer partake in 3700-Conservation Leadership offered by the University of Wyoming as well as wilderness medical classes and a robust month of field training. The WCC takes our education component seriously and it is, in part, why our members and leaders go on to manage Wyoming and as well as other states’ natural resources. We believe that having a fully educated team working in the field makes for better work, morale, and a further interest in the projects.
