GulfCorps Conservation Crew

Started in 2018, GulfCorps is a new initiative to restore coastal habitats along the Gulf Coast while creating new jobs for local young adults. Partnering with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and The Corps Network (TCN), SCA is excited to bring this opportunity to coastal Alabama.

Our GulfCorps crews conduct invasive species removal, shoreline restoration, water quality monitoring, trail work, boardwalk repair, and other activities. Crew members are paid hourly, while also receiving certifications, career development opportunities, and relevant training in coastal habitat restoration. In 2019, SCA received additional funding from EPA’s Gulf of Mexico Program for two crews that will be doing prescribed fire work.
