Trail Conference Conservation Corps (TCCC) provides great opportunities for outdoor lovers to become leaders in environmental conservation. Spend your summer outdoors protecting natural resources, gaining valuable experience in the field, and making a difference in conservation. Our beloved trails are more than just outdoor entertainment, they provide a necessary link between the public and habitat protection, offering essential opportunities to protect plant and animal species. TCCC trail crews maintain that link by building and repairing primitive trails to provide the public with safe, sustainable and enjoyable access to nature. Projects typically entail intensive labor and site modification (soil excavation, quarrying and moving large rocks) to produce quality results that minimize long-term environmental impact. Each year, hundreds of thousands of users enjoy the trails our crews have built and restored. Our AmeriCorps crews are trained by industry experts in sustainable trail building, invasive species management, public outreach, volunteer engagement, and outdoor leadership.

Members learn and serve in the greater New York metropolitan region, which features the nation's finest system of trails outside of a major urban area.
