Natural Resources Crews
CCNB’s Natural Resources Program provides young adults with training and work experience that prepares them to become engaged stewards of the local environment and community.
Conservation Corps North Bay acknowledges that we work in the traditional homeland of the Indigenous People of California.
CCNB crews perform the bulk of our yearly fire prevention, vegetation management, and storm preparation. They are indispensable to Marin County Parks, and their staff are knowledgeable and hardworking crew leaders.
We would like to thank Patrick and his crew for the amazing and wonderful work they completed for the community of Novato. Patrick was professional, reliable, flexible and very nice to work with. I heard positive comments from the homeowners as well. I look forward to working with your organization in the future.
I thoroughly appreciate CCNB’s hard-working crew members and supervisors. Without CCNB participation, we wouldn’t have the capacity to achieve what the CCNB team has helped accomplish.
Through partnerships with dozens of environmental agencies, corpsmembers gain exposure to concepts ranging from invasive species control, to energy efficiency, to public works and community safety. Our intensive program emphasizes safety, quality, and professionalism, with instruction in forestry, native species identification, ecological landscaping, power tool operation, carpentry, and more.
Our crews provide fundamental services to land management agencies and environmental organizations throughout Northern California by providing the “people power” needed to implement large-scale projects. CCNB holds a C-27 Landscape Contractor License and our team of staff supervisors have backgrounds as arborists, wildland firefighters, natural resource technicians, biological monitors, and landscapers. Our Natural Resources Crews help our community with:
- Fire fuel reduction
- Habitat restoration
- Trail construction and maintenance
- Flood prevention
- Invasive species removal
- Erosion control
- Low-water native plant landscaping
- Energy efficiency projects
