Tayler was born and raised in Ohio and relocated to Fort Collins originally to work as a corps member for the LCCC in the Water and Energy program and returned in 2020 to act as the Program Coordinator. She received a degree from Ohio University in Plant Biology with a focus in Applied Ecology. The past few years she has been working in Wyoming, facilitating efforts to collect terrestrial and aquatic habitat data across the state.

Tayler is excited to be a part of a team that is passionate about our environment as well as the community we live. She is thrilled to work with young adults with a similar passion. With a great appreciation for public lands, she enjoys spending her time outside of work climbing, backpacking, and enjoying the spring wildflowers.

Maelly Oropeza

Maelly Oropeza

Corps Manager

As a non-Colorado native, Maelly got here as quickly as he could. After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, he headed to the Pacific Northwest to Olympia, Washington. As an AmeriCorps volunteer for the Washington Conservation Corps, he found his calling in the corps experience and youth development. Since 2004, Maelly has overseen the sustainability of the Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) and its overall direction.

As a father of two boys, he still finds time to enjoy his other passions which include anything bicycle related, traveling the country seeing live music, camping with his family, and all things Kansas Basketball.

Mark Johnston

Workforce Development and Training Manager

Mark has lived in Fort Collins, Colorado for the last fourteen years. He stumbled upon the area with a group of classmates from Western Illinois University as he completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work with an emphasis in Adventure Recreation. Mark began his professional work in Fort Collins with Turning Point Center for Youth and Family Development, a drug and alcohol treatment center for youth.

After leading wilderness therapy trips and providing employment transition support for three years to youth, Mark was offered an opportunity to career counsel low-income youth at the Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development which ultimately led to Mark’s current position as the Adult and Youth Training Services Manager at the Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development.

Mark enjoys supporting Maelly and the rest of the Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) team. Mark’s hobbies, outside of spending time with his two sons and wife includes working in his perennial and vegetable gardens. You may even see Mark make a surprise visit to the Agricorps youth as they support local farmers in our community.
