Roots and Branches

YCC's summer campaign to support youth development careers and environmental stewardship

Roots and Branches image

Youth Conservation Corps’ summer conservation program started 50 years ago in 1974! We have continuously trained young people in environmental stewardship for half a century! For 50 years YCC’s summer program participants have safeguarded the future of Lake County’s green spaces and helped to increase access to them for all of us.

We are proud of these roots, and all the branches and leaves that have grown from them, both in our open spaces, and in our youth participants.

Please help us continue to grow!
