What is it like to be on the WisCorps Local Crew?
Work Hard and Create Community
Be prepared to work hard in beautiful places! The Local Crew is responsible for the gritty aspect of conservation at natural areas throughout La Crosse. The Local Crew serves with La Crosse area organizations to build trails, manage habitats, and perform carpentry projects. Participants get the chance to network with local non-profits, learn various land management techniques, and serve their community as a member of AmeriCorps.
Local Crew participants spend the duration of their experience (9 or 11 weeks) serving the La Crosse community. Project service takes place Monday through Friday with evenings and weekends off. Local Crew Leaders and Members must have their own housing in the La Crosse area in order to join the Local Crew.
Live Simply and Connect with Nature
Being on a WisCorps crew can be a platform for personal change. Crews connect with the natural areas of La Crosse through their AmeriCorps service. Previous Local Crew Leaders and Members have commented that this opportunity to connect with nature has helped them boost their self-esteem, confidence, and body image. During this experience, service people collaborate to eat healthily and minimize their impact on the earth.
