The Veterans Fisheries Corps Program provides veterans with training and natural resources work experience restoring fish habitat and conducting research and monitoring.
The program began in 2012 through a partnership between the California Conservation Corps (CCC), NOAA Fisheries, the U.S. Forest Service, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The program assists with salmon and steelhead recovery, while positioning veterans to compete for permanent positions in the natural resources fields.
The program began in Northern California and is now expanding to Southern California.
