About Project Conserve: Focus Areas

Waterways & Trails

In addition to making direct improvements to public lands, we build community support for at-risk ecosystems by creating and improving public access opportunities, including publicly accessible trails, for people to experience these unique areas for themselves.  AmeriCorps members:

  • Coordinate river clean-ups
  • Analyze water quality data to improve impaired streams
  • Implement stream bank improvements
  • Create and improve publically accessible trails  

These activities involve community volunteers recruited by the members, in addition to partner organizations. Members also create and improve trails and clean rivers and streams during team-wide service days.
