Our Field Crews, based in Austin, complete conservation projects for a variety of partners: Texas Parks & Wildlife, Tree Folks, City of Austin, Austin Parks Foundation, Travis County Parks, National Park Service, Oklahoma State Parks, US Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy, Shield Ranch Foundation, and Bureau of Reclamation.
Leaders will co-lead a 10 person crew through conservation projects. Crews will typically work a 10 days on and 4 days off schedule: leaving on a Monday, and coming back the following Wednesday. At the beginning of the week, the crew will go grocery shopping and purchase food with a budget provided by TxCC. The crews will then work, camp, eat, and live together until the end of their 10 day work cycle.
For local project site’s, crews will work a regular 8-5pm, Monday-Friday schedule. During projects, the crews will get to and from their project sites using our vehicles, driven by the crew leaders.
