In 1991, The C.R.E.W. got its start teaching teens how to work on backcountry trails in the Los Padres National Forest. Through hard work in the outdoors, crew members learned new skills, confidence, discipline, respect, and the value of a well-earned paycheck.
Today, C.R.E.W. members spend more than 11,000 hours in the field each year. Throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, our trail work covers hundreds of front and backcountry miles. We perform fuel reduction and fire prevention for land conservation groups, municipal agencies, and homeowners. And we have a growing body of restoration projects that support healthy, biodiverse, and resilient lands.
Your support of The C.R.E.W. ensures steady employment for young people as they care for our beloved natural places.

Our trucks cover many miles, and mileage has more than doubled since the the onset of COVID-19. Multiple trucks travel to each job site in order to minimize staff contact during travel.
