FEATURED INITIATIVE

Conservation Corps

of the Forgotten and Emerald Coasts


Selected by the Corps Network and The Nature Conservancy to be part of the Gulf Coast Restoration Initiative in 2014, the Coalition has brought the Conservation Corps of the Forgotten and Emerald Coasts to a reality. Now in the fifth year, the program is a comprehensive youth development program for young adults 14-25 years of age (veterans up to 29) which provides participants with job training, academic programming, leadership skills, and additional support through a strategy of service that conserves, protects and improves the environment, as well as community resilience. This initiative continues to accomplish an array of specific habitat restoration projects throughout the region such as invasive species removal, living shoreline installation, oyster reef restoration, water quality monitoring, and pine savanna restoration.

“I heard of all the benefits and opportunities the Conservation Corps could bring. I’ve learned so much more than if I wouldn’t have joined this program. I’m looking forward to a career with Duke Energy” -Jimmy Wagner


“All my buddies were doing it, so I decided to join and accomplish something in life. We do some really cool things that I wouldn’t have gotten to experience without the Conservation Corps.” -Dillon Grant


“Before I joined, I couldn’t find a good job because I didn’t have my diploma. Then I heard about the Ed-Corps. Now I’m working on getting my diploma and thinking about future careers like Forestry. It's a friendly environment and the people are great to work with.” -Chris Carr
