Conservation Corps New Mexico (CCNM) operates conservation service programs across southern New Mexico that engage individuals and strengthen communities through service and conservation.
Since 1998, Arizona Conservation Corps has worked on projects throughout southern New Mexico. With Conservation Legacy's commitment to supporting locally-based programs and communities, southern New Mexico programming and projects will transition to locally-based Conservation Corps New Mexico operations out of Las Cruces, NM, in order to best serve local communities, young people and landscapes in this region. AZCC will continue to provide operational support into the future.
WE CARRY ON THIS TRADITION WITH HARD WORK, DEDICATION AND PRIDE. Conservation Corps New Mexico aims to continue the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s. CCNM is focused on connecting youth, young adults and recent era military veterans with conservation service work projects on public lands. Our programs promote personal growth, experiential learning and an ethic of natural resource stewardship, along with hard work.
Who We Serve
Conservation Legacy emphasizes the recruitment and engagement of diverse teams and individuals who learn from each other and their projects in a supportive environment. In selecting participants, Conservation Legacy encourages all types of diversity including, but not limited to; race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, social-economic, and disability. Conservation Legacy also emphasizes the engagement of local individuals who represent the communities in which they serve. Conservation Legacy intentionally searches for funding sources and program options to support the goal of offering experiences to a wide range of participants.
These programs are available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity or expression, political affiliation, marital or parental status, genetic information, and military service. Where a significant portion of the population eligible to be served needs services or information in a language other than English, Conservation Legacy shall take reasonable steps to provide written material of the type ordinarily available to the public in appropriate languages.
Conservation Legacy is committed to equal access to programs, facilities, and employment for all persons. It is the policy of Conservation Legacy to maintain an environment free of harassment and discrimination against any person based on age, race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, creed, military service, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, physical or mental disability, genetic information or political ideas. Discriminatory conduct and harassment, as well as sexual misconduct and relationship violence, violates the dignity of individuals, impedes the achievement of Conservation Legacy’s mission, and will not be tolerated.
