DTLA - The Los Angeles Conservation Corps, a nonprofit that trains young adults and children and works on environmental projects, has moved from one Downtown space to another. Last week, the organization shifted its headquarters from Olympic Boulevard to the northern end of Downtown, at 1400 N. Spring St.

The two-story space has been dubbed the John Van de Kamp Center, in honor of the former county District Attorney and state Attorney General who was also a founding board member of the organization. The space officially opened on Friday, Sept. 28. The Conservation Corps modernized the building’s infrastructure and created a computer training room. The move allows the Corps to double its staff from 20 to 40 employees. The Corps runs programs that, among other things, plant trees and clean litter from Los Angeles streets.
