On Fridays, the Conservation Corps works together on full day environmental, conservation, and/or historical service project located within the Rockland region.

Our hard-working Corps Members have accomplished many successful community projects over the years, including invasive species removal, trail building and maintenance, habitat restoration, tree planting, trash clean ups, and more!

Educational, municipal, or non-profit organizations can apply to mobilize our 20 – 25 Corps Members to take on a project that will make a tangible impact on our community.
