Conservation corps member wins award

Robert Matticks, a 21-year-old Grand Junction man who’s worked with the Western Colorado Conservation Corps for two seasons, has been selected as Corps Member of the Year.

“We can count on Robert to show up on time, go to the field with his crew and work hard on our varied projects no matter what,” said Clark Bouton, a member of the corps staff.

Matticks said he expects to use two educational awards from AmeriCorps worth a total of $2,547 to attend a technical school and earn a commercial driver’s license. He hopes to pursue a career in transportation, shipping or the railroad industry. 

A program of Mesa County Partners, the Western Colorado Conservation Corps employs and trains youth, young adults and military veterans to work on land, water and energy conservation projects.
