Work with the Conservation Corps building trails and preserving natural habitats

​Conservation Corps Crew Members built this stone staircase in Davidson Mill Pond Park in South Brunswick.

​Who we are
The Middlesex County Youth Conservation Corps is a team of individuals, ages 16 and up, who carry out various projects in the County’s Open Space land parcels. They are hired on a seasonal basis – Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter – to ensure that the maximum number of citizens are exposed to environmental management practices. The crews are diverse and come from different backgrounds and have varied experience.
What we do
The Middlesex County Youth Conservation Corps focuses on three main areas of work:
• Trash/Dumping clean-up, debris, brush removal.
• Existing trail maintenance and new trail construction.
• Habitat restoration, which includes pulling invasive species and reforestation.
All training is provided as the work progresses. Our efforts are strong and the results rewarding!

Where we work
The Open Space parcels that the Middlesex County Youth Conservation Corps work on are located throughout the County. Most often the work occurs in Old Bridge, East Brunswick, South Brunswick, and Monroe Townships, as well as other county open space as needed.

Crew Members Wanted!
