About WisCorps

Conservation. Education. Community.

The WisCorps mission is to develop leadership, self-confidence, and a strong work ethic in youth and young adults through the active stewardship of Wisconsin’s communities and natural resources. WisCorps, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) conservation corps headquartered in La Crosse, Wisconsin that engages youth and young adults in two areas: conservation projects and nature education.


Conservation Projects

Crews of 4 to 6 Crew Members complete high-quality work as they gain technical skills and expand their knowledge of Wisconsin’s natural resources. Crew Leaders and Members are paid a wage for their work. Projects crews have completed in Wisconsin and throughout the Upper Midwest include:

  • trail construction and rehabilitation

  • invasive species management

  • rock staircase and retaining wall construction

  • storm damage cleanup

  • prairie restoration

  • trail bridge construction 

  • trail boardwalk construction

Nature Education Programs

At WisCorps, we believe that environmental and nature education is crucial to the development of schoolchildren, youth, and adults through quality learning experiences in nature and with a positive and welcoming atmosphere.


Our goal is to foster appreciation and a sense of stewardship for the environment and our natural resources throughout the La Crosse community and surrounding area as a whole.


As a result, individuals will develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.
