Six Week Journey of AmeriCorps' National Civilian Community Corps Crew
On June 3rd, a team of nine young people flew from Sacramento, CA to Anchorage to begin a six week journey in Alaska. The team is a part of AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps), a federal program for 18-24 year olds where teams travel, live, and work together with various non-profit organizations. Their first stop in Alaska was the Glennallen Field Office to work with BLM-Alaska and get some training.
They moved campsites each night, always enjoying a beautiful view.
The team made it to Denali, and was able to enjoy their days off at the national park.
They will continue to work with BLM-Alaska for the remainder of their second week in Alaska, removing a trespass cabin and doing more trail maintenance, before moving on to work with WISE (Wrangell Institute for Science and Environment) in Copper Center and then the CRWP (Copper River Watershed Project) and U.S. Forest Service in Cordova. The team is incredibly thrilled to have this chance to visit Alaska and will definitely enjoy the rest of their time there.
