Speaker Series, “Arizona Conservation Corps’ Indigenous Community’s Program”

January 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Massai will speak about the indigenous Arizona Conservation Corps (AZCC) crews, the projects they are doing, and how they are always looking for people to join the program. He will also talk about AZCC’s relationship with the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument and the projects they have worked on here.

Massai Leon started in the conservation world in 2019 by working with American Conservation Experience and has since been involved with AZCC and was one of  the first interns with the Indian Youth Service Corps at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. As a graduate from the Traditional Trades Apprenticeship program, he currently works for AZCC as a program coordinator and recruitment technician. Being a Chiricahua Apache, he is involved in his community by working with and coordinating the Indigenous crews with AZCC and continuing his family’s culture and traditions.
