Southeast Conservation Corps

Southeast Conservation Corps

Southeast Conservation Corps (SECC), operates conservation service programs throughout the Southeast that focus on meeting the needs of the natural landscapes while empowering people to cultivate compassion, responsibility, and grit through community service, hard work, and environmental stewardship.

Building upon the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps, we are focused on connecting people to the natural environment through conservation-based service learning, personal development, and recreation.

From the field:
Working with the Southeast Conservation Corps is a win-win for all parties involved. The park benefits by getting quality workmanship on projects that benefit our visitors and the environment. The young adults that make up the SECC crews are well disciplined and are eager to work and learn through engagement with the park staff."
