“The WisCorps crew are the people responsible for the dirty, gritty aspect of conservationism.” -2016 Fall WisCorps Conservation Crew Member
The WisCorps ASL Conservation Crews work in a variety of Wisconsin’s parks, natural areas, and trails. Crew members will be supervised by experienced adult crew leaders who are fluent in ASL and/or experienced in conservation. Crews work Monday through Friday, and together to complete projects such as:
- Trail building
- Invasive Species management
- Carpentry (Constructing bridges, boardwalks)
- Habitat restoration
- Accessible trails
WisCorps crews live sustainably, unplugged, and follow Leave No Trace principles. Conversation Crews camp throughout the experience at a variety of locations, including rustic campsites. During the experience, crew members work together to eat healthy and minimize their impact on the earth. Enjoy the simple life of campfires, reading books, journaling, talking to fellow crew-mates!
On the weekends, conservation crews stay together to explore or travel to their next project site. We believe that staying together throughout the experience, creates a close knit community, ask any WisCorps alumni. This is a great opportunity to explore Wisconsin’s best kept secret natural areas, local festivals, or farmer’s markets!
