What is a conservation corps? 

A conservation corps (pronounced like the "core" of the earth) is an organization or program that engages youth and young adults in service projects mainly focused on conserving our natural resources, building and maintaining access to nature, and helping our communities through targeted service projects. Members of the conservation corps usually work on a crew for a term of service from six to ten weeks in length. 

What is a conservation crew?

A conservation crew is a group of five to eight individuals who work together to complete conservation projects. At WisCorps, each crew has two crew leaders (one crew leader and one assistant crew leader) who mentor and lead three to five crew members.
