The Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC) AmeriCorps program is a 25-year-old program administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Florida Park Service with members serving at state parks throughout Florida.
Members serving under FLCC Project A.N.T. (AmeriCorps Nonnative plant Terminators) serve as pairs in approximately 25 Florida State Parks, focused on habitat restoration through the management of invasive plants.
Members help to reduce invasive plant infestations through various land management techniques but also educate park visitors and surrounding communities through outreach and interpretation, as well as recruit volunteers to support their plant management endeavors.
FLCC AmeriCorps members for this position will report daily to onsite park management, known as their Site Supervisor, and submit service data via email/SharePoint, to FLCC staff based in Gainesville, FL
Members are required to serve 900 hours between July 2022 – December 31, 2022. This equates to approximately 35 – 40 hours per week. FLCC AmeriCorps members are not employees, but rather are engaged in a term of National Service. To find out more about AmeriCorps, National Service, and the program you can visit:
