Say hi to our GrizzlyCorps Fellow!

The El Dorado and Georgetown Divide Resource Conservation Districts have partnered with UC Berkeley’s new AmeriCorps program called the GrizzlyCorps. The GrizzlyCorps program sends recent college graduates to farm and forest communities in California for 11 months to work on regenerative agriculture and forest/fire resilience, building farm, forest, and community resilience, promoting education, volunteerism, and community engagement.  

Jason Landers is our new GrizzlyCorps Forest Resilience Fellow. During his service term with the RCD, he’ll be working on wildfire prevention, renovating our xeriscape garden at the El Dorado County Fair and Event Center, increasing our educational resources for landowners, and much more! We’re excited to welcome Jason to our team and look forward to his next year of service.
