Conservation Corps Minnesota accepting applications for 2014

The Conservation Corps Minnesota and Iowa is taking applications from young adults, ages 18 to 25, for 160 crew member and leader positions in the 2014 program year. Positions are available statewide, as well as central Iowa. Priority application deadline is Dec. 4.

All projects are completed on public land in cooperation with nonprofit organizations and government agencies, such as the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). These opportunities provide technical field experience and professional certifications for future natural resource careers. Many natural resources professionals got their start with the Conservation Corps (formerly MCC).

Corps members receive on-the-job training in natural resource management and put those skills into practice working on habitat restoration projects throughout the Midwest. Crew members receive a living stipend of $1,210 a month (crew leaders: $1,565 a month), health insurance, student loan forbearance during the service term and a post-service AmeriCorps Education Award that may be used for college expenses or to repay qualified student loans.

To apply for the field crew program, and to view other AmeriCorps positions with Conservation Corps, visit or contact Mark van der Linden, recruitment coordinator for more information at or 651-209-9900, ext. 31.
