Conservation Crew Supervisors are in charge of supervising non-violent, minimum custody offenders, whom are serving time with the Nevada Department of Corrections. They are trained in and provide labor for conservation projects, community assistance, wildland fire suppression, and other emergency response activities. Currently NDF has nine Conservation Camps across our great State.
