Conservation Corps of Long Beach Environmental Education Center
By Jim Schneider
Founded in 1987, the Conservation Corps of Long Beach in Long Beach, Calif., is a nonprofit whose mission is to educate and develop basic work skills and ethics, as well as promote environmental conservation, self esteem and teamwork for at-risk youth in the Long Beach area. As CCLB’s programs grew, so did its need for space and improved facilities. The group has contracts with local property owners and nearby cities to collect recyclables and do recycling. These activities had been done out of the Corps’ headquarters, which wasn’t designed for that use, so it was decided to expand into a new space to house the organization’s recycling efforts.
