Description
The California Conservation Corps was created in 1976, in order to further the development and maintenance of the natural resources and environment of the State, and to provide the young men and women of the State meaningful, productive employment. The records of the California Conservation Corps consist of 4 cubic feet of work project files that cover the years 1978-1980.
Background
On July 7, 1976, Governor Jerry Brown signed the enabling legislation for the California Conservation Corps (Chapter 342 of Statutes 1976). This bill created the Corps as a department within the Resources Agency and included a sunset clause. The program was set to expire on January 1, 1981, unless reauthorized. The first director of the California Conservation Corps was Boyd "Buck" Horner (1976-1977), who set out to accomplish the two main goals of the Corps: (1) to further the development and maintenance of the natural resources and environment of the State, and (2) to provide the young men and women of the State meaningful, productive employment, training in employable skills, and educational opportunities.
