Hire a Crew

NACC

  1. "The NACC Crew did exceptional work on a difficult trail in tough conditions. We had soaking rain, lightning and hail and less than ideal camping conditions. The crew remained cheerful and graceful in addition to doing top quality work. Thanks!” - Kevin Whelan, Kaibab National Forest
  2. “Overall I was very pleased with CREC and will work with them again.” - Melissa McMaster, Grand Canyon National Park
  3. “I really enjoy working with young adults on projects like this one, and hope that I was able to teach the CREC crew a little about native plants and native vegetation restoration techniques.” - Paul Whitefield, Walnut Canyon National Monument

YCC

  1. “We truly wouldn’t have been able to complete this work without the CREC/YCC crews’ assistance. We hope they enjoyed completing a project, the effects of which will remain on the red rock district for years and help us promote sustainability.” – Autumn Ela, Coconino National Forest
  2. “The YCC program is a great opportunity for youth to learn work ethics, resource management, and enjoy the outdoors. CREC continues to grow as a partner of the Coconino National Forest, and the YCC program is a great addition to the partnership." - Paul Hart, Trails, Wilderness, and Rivers Lead.
  3. In 2010, the YCC built new trail, brushed miles and miles of existing trail, installed and repaired fences in burn areas and riparian corridors, built rock retaining walls and spillways, bucked hay, marked trees for thinning, surveyed bat habitats, and removed noxious weeds from many acres of public land.

ECC

  1. ECC crews weatherize more than 200 structures for low-income residents and public land managers each year.
  2. From the depths of the Grand Canyon to the most rural areas of Coconino County, no structure is too remote for the ECC to retrofit!
  3. The ECC saves more that 300 megawatt hours of electricity and reduces more than 200 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
