March 4 • Time TBD
Hosted by: Edison International, Conservation Lands Foundation, the California Conservation Corps, the Bureau of Land Management, and Mojave Desert Land Trust
More information coming soon!
Since 2012, Edison International has supported partnership among the California Conservation Corp (CCC), Conservation Lands Foundation (CLF), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) team up, local non-profits, military veterans, and local communities to conduct multi-week, intensive stewardship and restoration projects on our beautiful protected public lands in the California Desert.
This helps provide job opportunities for young military veterans who serve with the CCC repairing trails, protecting cultural sites, and restoring habitat. In turn, these CCC Veterans Conservation Corp members receive pay, wildfire training, professional mentoring by BLM staff, and work experience to pursue careers in natural resource management.
This year, thanks again to Edison International’s support, the partnership will celebrate the one year anniversary of Sand to Snow, Mojave Trails, and Castle Mountains national monuments with a three-week project at Black Lava Butte & Flat Top Mesa in Sand to Snow National Monument. The project will install new signs, repair trails and habitat, and ocean up trash in this well-loved area so the public can have better opportunities to experience and enjoy YOUR Sand to Snow National Monument!
The public is invited to come meet the Veterans Corp, volunteer, and learn more about the monuments on March 4th!
