Arizona Conservation Corps has been a partner with the Gila Watershed Partnership for four years. Two Arizona Conservation Corps Alumni staff the ranks of GWP alongside a locally placed AZCC staff member. This partnership has allowed both organizations to develop additional capacity, gain productivity, efficiency, explore and develop new funding sources, expand staffing, build and retain critical technical skills, improve risk management, and serve the local community holistically.
AZCC Field Program Director, Brian Gold, will discuss the history, operation, and impact of the Conservation Corps with specific focus on the partnership with GWP and land management agencies in and around Safford, AZ at the next GWP meeting April 13th at 7pm in the General Services Building, 921 Thatcher Blvd, Safford, AZ.
