Project Description:

Our diversity conservation corps is seeking young adults from underrepresented communities to conserve the  iconic Saguaro Cactus and other native park life in Saguaro National Park. As Corps members, you’ll drive hands-on  projects, preserving the park’s resources for future generations.  

Climate change threatens the park with rising temperatures and drought. Corps members counter this with  conservation actions: removing invasive species, restoring habitats, monitoring Saguaro cacti, and improving  wildlife passages. Through regular data collection, the Diversity Conservation Corps tracks Saguaro growth and  adaptation. They also restore riparian areas and enhance wildlife connectivity by modifying fences. Crew members  will receive training in service work as well as herbicide application and Wilderness First Aid. 

Applicants should be aware of the demanding nature of the work, involving daily hikes with temperatures  potentially exceeding 90-degrees in late October. Being physically fit and ready for strenuous fieldwork under  these conditions is essential. Crew Members will be part of a diverse team of six (6) stationed at Saguaro National  Park.


  • Proven hiking, camping expertise, and passion for physical challenges.
  • Strong team collaboration skills.
  • Dedicated to both personal and team
