Project Overview

The division has begun a new career-track training program that utilizes "individual placement" corpsmembers, currently stationed at DNR headquarters. With Legacy Funding, the Conservation Corps was able to hire two individual placement positions in 2010 and offered a total of five Legacy Funded positions in the 2011 program year that serve division Legacy program needs. Continuing in 2012, these five positions create opportunity for AmeriCorps members to learn while serving, provide the DNR with additional assistance for important projects, and establish a link to the Conservation Corps field program by engaging our members in events and training that support Parks and Trails Division projects.

About the Issue

These career development/training positions serve in the areas of outreach, interpretation, GIS/mapping, landscape design, and planning assistance/outreach.
