What’s the antidote to gangs, unemployment and juvenile crime? In part, it’s the newly rechristened Conservation Corps North Bay.
Marilee Eckert, the organization's Executive Director, explains that their expansion into Sonoma County was begun in early 2009, with the support and encouragement of many local leaders.
Looking ahead, Eckert sees a busy future for the Conservation Corps North Bay, doing more of what they are already working on.
The Conervation Corps was featured previously on the North Bay Report when they launched their Sonoma County operations in January, 2009.
