What is it like to be on a WisCorps FIELD Crew?
Work Hard and Create Community.
Be prepared to be dirty, sweaty, and work hard. WisCorps field crews are responsible for the gritty aspect of conservation and community revitalization. Crew members who have different abilities and experiences work together to complete projects to make positive and lasting change, whether it in a remote wetland or a community garden. Living in a diverse and supportive community crew members have an opportunity to expand their comfort zone and discover new facets of themselves.
Conservation Field Crew Members spend the entire duration of their contract (8-10 weeks) living, working and traveling together with their crew. Work takes place Monday through Friday, weekends are “OFF”, but crews stay together participating in recreational opportunities, or other outdoor fun.
Live Simply and Connect with Nature.
Being on a WisCorps crew can be a platform for personal change. By living without drugs, alcohol, or tobacco crew members can choose to start a new chapter in their lives. Some crew members used their crew experience as a time to explore mediation/yoga or stop smoking. It is WisCorps policy to be drug, alcohol, and tobacco-free during crew. Crews connect with nature through their work, leisure time, and camps. Previous crew members have commented that the connection to nature has helped them boost their self-esteem, confidence, and body image.
WisCorps crews live sustainably, and follow Leave No Trace principles. Leave No Trace's 7 principles help humans reduce the impact we have on the earth. During the experience, crew members work together to eat healthily and minimize their impact on the earth. Crews are responsible for shopping and cooking together. Crew members explore different hobbies, interests, and the environment around them!
