I was looking for hands-on experience helping with conservation work, as well as looking for help with my financial burden of student loan debt.
I would like to travel outside of the U.S. for conservation and humane work.
I really enjoy working outdoors and all of the great team bonding we do.
I have done a lot of AmeriCorps programs, but this is the only one I’ve found that combines all of my passions into one.
I plan to use my education award for school and I want to travel. I may want to do the Peace Corps as well.
My supervisor’s support and interest in my future goals. I also enjoy meeting new people and park staff and working with animals!!
I wanted to learn about habitat and stream restoration and serve in other environmental projects, so that I can put this knowledge into practice towards my future career in conservation.
Possibly to go to graduate school or to become a Soil Conservationist or Wastewater Plant Treatment Operator/Technician.
I enjoy working as a team to complete hands-on projects. We work efficiently together and I get to use tools I’ve never used before.
It allowed me to explore my field of study and confirm my desired career path. I was able to earn valuable certifications and attend trainings that were beneficial to what I want to do. I made eternal friendships and met numerous people that gave advice and experience that have helped me all along my journey as an MCC member.
My ultimate career goal is to become a Maryland Park Service Ranger.
I enjoy the broad spectrum of field activities, educational programs, and trainings that we do. I feel like no day is the same as the last, which keeps it refreshing.
I wanted to gain a lot of important experience and meet new people. I’m very pleased with how the program has turned out so far.
My future goal is to finish college and hopefully move back to Alaska. I would love to become a Ranger or work with the Fisheries Department there.
I enjoy meeting new folks and getting a chance to talk to them about all of their experiences and gain valuable information. I also appreciate being outside and working on new projects.
I wanted to do my part in protecting our state’s environment and to ensure the patrons who come to Maryland’s State Parks enjoy their time. I also wanted to learn new skills through trainings and to make connections with people to help me get a job in the Park Service.
To work with a State or National Park Service.
I like being able to work outside almost every day, being able to educate the public about protecting our natural resources, and working with youth groups who seldom get a chance to experience nature.
