Duties: As a NCC crew member, you will live and work in some of Nevada’s premiere outdoor recreation and wilderness areas. Project work for the summer may include constructing new recreation trails, improving and restoring critical wildlife habitat, and/or restoration of stream and riparian environments. Led by a Crew Leader who has passed through the NCC’s extensive Leadership Development Program, you will work alongside other members from across the country who share a common passion for conservation and the outdoors. The NCC strives to contribute real and meaningful improvements to Nevada’s public lands, and as such our crew related work focuses on on-the-ground implementation of conservation projects. As a member you will be in the field, swinging tools, planting plants, and getting your hands dirty every day of service. The NCC is looking for members that understand the value of hard work and are ready to get in the field and get things done. To facilitate a safe and successful conservation experience, the NCC puts all members through an extensive, week-long orientation where they receive training in technical skills related to trail building and land restoration practices, while obtaining certifications in Leave No Trace ethics and CPR/First Aid. Summer members will participate in orientation during their first week. In addition to orientation, NCC staff and leaders offer continuing on-the-job training to improve member’s technical and soft skills, and facilitating learning modules to educate members about the work we do and the areas we serve. The NCC also organizes educational opportunities with agency project partners and industry professionals, providing members with an inside look at the management strategies and technical research behind our project work. Summer members will be based out of GBI’s Reno, Las Vegas, or Ely office. Schedules will be dictated by project requirements and site location. Crews may be assigned to a variety of projects throughout the season, and the schedule may fluctuate between 4- and 8-day tours. While on tour, you will camp at the project site, sharing in campsite responsibilities, cooking meals with fellow crew members, and participating in group discussions and learning activities around the campfire. This shared responsibility and crew bonding is an important part of NCC member development strategy, and has contributed not only to the success of the program, but also to the formation of friendships and a passion for conservation work that last long after members finish their service.
