Environment Nevada Conservation Corps Crew Leader

Great Basin Institute | Nevada Conservation Corps – Posted by Recrutiment Reno, Nevada, United States

Job Description

Challenge yourself as a leader of a 5-person crew while conducting critical conservation work in some of the Southwest’s most beautiful areas. Serve from the mountains of Nevada to the vast landscapes of the Great Basin and Mohave Deserts. The NCC is looking for experienced Crew Leaders to tackle day-to-day responsibilities of crew life.

You will lead four AmeriCorps Crew Members while building trail, running chainsaws, or performing other restoration projects on public lands in some of Nevada’s most beautiful locales.
