Green Bay Conservation Corps
With 2,658 acres of recreational space and greenways in the City of Green Bay, the Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department created an AmeriCorps program to bring more conservation efforts to Green Bay.
Conservation Corps crews are responsible for improving trail systems throughout Green Bay, invigorating pollinator habitats with new native plantings and improving native habitat with restoration practices.
Crew members receive a living allowance, on-the-job training, and are eligible for the Segal education award after completion of their term. Now hiring for summer members.
