AmeriCorps Field Crew Members (ages 18-25) receive on-the-job training to learn natural resources management skills and put those skills into practice completing habitat restoration projects throughout the Midwest. Crews complete natural resource conservation projects such as tree planting, exotic species management, trail construction, stream bank stabilization, prescribed burning, wildland fire fighting and emergency response. Crew Members also get the chance to work alongside conservation professionals and explore career options within the environmental field.
This is a full-time commitment for a year-long AmeriCorps service term. The Crew Member will receive a monthly stipend and an education award upon successful completion of the term that may be used for education expenses or to repay qualified student loans.
