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.
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
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.
