CORPSMEMBER SPOTLIGHT

ALEXIS HERNANDEZ

Life before coming to the LA Conservation Corps was not as productive or positive for Alexis as it is now. Previously, he didn’t have the drive to finish something that required effort. Alexis would waste his time doing negative things not thinking about how it affected the people around him. The Corps not only helped Alexis buckle down and finish school, but it also helped him gain skills like being on time, thinking ahead, and learning how to work well with others. Alexis also credits the Corps with helping him learn the right and safe way to do things and discovering that he can do anything as long as he puts effort, time, and hard work into it. Alexis has been so inspired by his own transformation that once he leaves the Corps, he wants to use his new skills to help others develop skills of their own, so they can live a positive lifestyle, too.

Help us change young lives!

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

BALDWIN HILLS TRAIL & STORM WATER RESTORATION PROJECT

The LA Conservation Corps, California State Parks and the Audubon Society are working together on a trail construction, restoration, and maintenance, and habitat restoration at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook in Culver City. Corpsmembers are grading and widening or narrowing trails that have been impacted by wear and tear, installing barriers, rebuilding the stairs, closing unsanctioned trails, and restoring habitat that have been damaged by guests going off trail or forging unsanctioned trails. Corpsmembers are learning construction and environmental skills as well as gaining valuable customer service experience by interacting with the countless numbers of visitors that frequent this destination each and every day.
