Sample Conservation Corps Member North Carolina Job Description

Conservation Corps Member - North Carolina

 

The American Conservation Experience is seeking AmeriCorps Members dedicated to working 8 or 12 weeks in the outdoors with our Conservation Corps. Based out of Asheville, NC, projects take place all over the southeast.

ACE's AmeriCorps Conservation program is meant to be a stepping stone to environmental careers and/or as a gateway to future leadership positions within ACE. ACE Corps Members share a passion for environmental conservation and volunteerism.

Corps members play a role in conservation projects throughout the southeast. Currently teams are working in the Blue Ridge Parkway, Congaree National Forest, Daniel Boone National Forest, and more.

In the Gettysburg National Military Park, corps members are restoring the landscape of the battlefield to what it looked like during the time of the Civil War. Projects there include habitat restoration by means of eradicating non-native invasive plants, preserving the historic Virginia worm fencing, rock wall repair, and trail maintenance. In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a backcountry project based on Mt. Leconte, crews are maintaining the Alum Cave Trail by way of brushing, tread work, and chipping staircases out of the bedrock using rock drills.

This opportunity is intended for enthusiastic young adults (18-25) looking to serve as environmental stewards, learn practical skills in the field, and perform professional work under the guidance of our project partners. Conservation projects with ACE often include habitat restoration, trail building, reforestation, and invasive species removal.

Expectations

Applicants must be capable of performing physically demanding labor on environmental and conservation projects for 10 hours a day. Applicants should expect to hike extended distances on rough terrain carrying 40 lbs, and be prepared to spend 8 consecutive days in the field, on one project. Corps members will work in a variety of weather conditions such as temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, high winds, intense sunshine, rain, and snow.

Benefits

Corps Members obtain an Education Award for the amount of $1,212.44 (for 8 weeks), $1,515.55 (for 12 weeks) or $2,865 (for 24 weeks) upon successful completion of service.

ACE also provides corps members with a $220.00 bi-weekly living stipend, meals/food during all project days, and hostel-style housing in Asheville during off-days.
