Allow me to introduce you to the American Conservation Experience. The ACE Conservation Corps. It is a program designed to teach youth how to love, respect, conserve and explore nature. There are multiple programs that are offered through different age groups.
These programs, take members and volunteers into our National and State Parks to build hiking trails, make repairs, clear debris, maintain campgrounds. It teaches them the basics of Leave No Trace and many of the hands on skills required to move forward in the conservation or Park Ranger world.
If you’ve ever considered getting into conservation. If you’re an avid hiker, if you love the outdoors, if you like adventure and travel… Then check them out. Share them with someone you know who is just out or contemplating college. It’s an amazing opportunity.
