Land Conservation Leaders (LCL)

The Land Conservation Leaders program is a demanding, team-based, leadership experience providing a service opportunity in environmental stewardship.   Land Conservation Leaders actively participate in and facilitate weekly educational sessions and team building activities, plan and lead service projects, and build leadership skills as they serve as Assistant Crew Leaders and, ultimately, Co-Crew Leaders.

Additionally, Corpsmembers plan and lead service projects, facilitate education and team-building activities, and engage in community outreach.

This program is currently available in Denver. Check out our current Corpsmember positions here.
