“The WisCorps crew are the people responsible for the dirty, gritty aspect of conservationism.” -2016 Fall WisCorps Conservation Crew Member
The WisCorps Inclusive Community Crew works in a variety of La Crosse’s parks, natural areas, community gardens, and trails. Crew members will be supervised by experienced adult crew leaders who are experienced in adapting activities and/or 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 (survey and construction)
WisCorps crews live sustainably, unplugged, and follow Leave No Trace principles. The Inclusive Community Crew lives together in La Crosse, in an accessible apartment or house. During the experience, crew members work together to eat healthy and minimize their impact on the earth. Enjoy the simple life of playing board games, reading books, journaling, talking to fellow crew-mates!
Explore the Driftless Region
On the weekends, the crew stays together to explore La Crosse and the surrounding Driftless region. 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 adaptive outdoor sports!
