Adult Conservation Crews

Adult conservation crews perform challenging and meaningful project work at ancestral sites and public spaces across the western US. Members gain crucial stewardship skills, certifications, and experience while connecting with and caring for our lands.

Want to make a difference?

Ancestral Lands Conservation Corps (ALCC) crews are comprised of 4-6 young adults, ages 18-30. ALCC operates with the understanding that all lands are ancestral lands and, as such, our crews' and our staff must approach stewardship responsibly through an Indigenous perspective.

Adult crews visit and complete project work at various culturally significant sites in the Southwest. Crews will camp and work at these sites for 4-10 days in front-country and back-country settings. ALCC provides all required training and support in order to provide a safe, impactful, and inclusive experience for all participants.



Projects can include historic preservation, trail maintenance and construction, chainsaw operations for fire fuels mitigation, habitat restoration in remote locations.

ALCC operates adult conservation crews from each of its five office locations: Albuquerque, NM | Acoma, NM | Gallup, NM | Zuni, NM | Kykotsmovi, AZ
