Pacific West, CA

Three diverse regional California locations to choose from…

ACE Pacific West

ACE Pacific West strives towards the ACE mission of creating meaningful service opportunities for as diverse a membership as possible, and does so in partnership with diverse land managers as well. From the Cascade Mountains and shrub steppe in the north, throughout the Sierra Nevada, along the coast and interior valleys, to the chaparral and deserts in the south – in wilderness areas and urban interfaces alike – ACE Pacific West crews hear the call to serve, and conduct ecological restoration, trail improvement, and hazardous fuel reduction projects wherever the work is needed.

To join ACE Pacific West is to contribute to a lasting legacy of work proudly implemented for the benefit of the environment and communities all throughout the state. It is to develop professionally in a goal-oriented culture, and grow within a team. To hire an ACE Pacific West crew is to leverage a mission of service into practical objectives on the ground. It is to work together toward shared, meaningful outcomes.

With Northern, Central, and Southern, California regional positions available all season long! The wildlands of California await you!

ACE Pacific West – Northern

ACE CA also operates housing based in South Lake Tahoe, for those participants who are stationed on projects in the mountains of northern CA during the warm summer months. Tahoe, an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, boasts a great variety of hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and other activities across the stately granite mountains of the Sierra Nevada. And, of course, there’s the beach. Reno is only an hour away, for those looking for the excitement of city-life during days off. Like Santa Cruz, Tahoe is a great, beloved destination spot for many Californians, and provides many opportunities for our corpsmembers based there.

ACE Pacific West – Southern

ACE’s Southern California branch is based in east San Diego County, just a 40-minute drive from downtown San Diego. San Diego County is one of the most ecologically diverse areas in Southern California, and is home to 14 ecological habitats that include beaches, coastal sage scrub, chaparral and deserts. San Diego County offers hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing and camping under a vast wilderness and clear skies. There are a variety of easy day trips available to members based in Pacific West South, such as exploring Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, hiking in Cleveland National Forest to Three Sisters Waterfall, visiting historic towns like Julian – an old mining town with abundant apple orchards. The housing provided for members is exceptional! ACE has a 4-acre property located in tree covered riparian habitat and is surrounded by public lands. It is minutes away from hiking trails, some of the best street tacos in San Diego, and public transportation that will whisk you away to downtown San Diego!
