A 30-Year Conservation Legacy

Make Friends. Make Memories. Make A Difference.  

The Nature Corps is the premier national network of volunteers dedicated to education through the preservation of America’s Parks.

A Youth Stewardship and STEM Opportunity Your Students Will Love

Nature Corps collaborates with park agencies and various youth organizations to utilize the awe-inspiring beauty of our parks to impact low-income youth. The goal of the program is to instill the students with an appreciation for nature and encourage them to serve as stewards of our public lands

To achieve these objectives The Nature Corps implements the following components:

Showcasing

Over the course of the outing, we showcase a number of fulfilling careers in conservation, Introducing the youth to exciting outdoor recreational opportunities

Engaging

It’s more than volunteering, it’s a hands-on educational program that will leave your students with life long memories! It's STEM with a cause.

Rewarding

This is like no other experience. Your students will come for a week of STEM and volunteer, but leave the legacy of a lifetime.

Program Objectives

Convincing most young people to do hard physical work for several days on behalf of the common good is an ethic that is foreign to most nowadays. But by combining volunteering with “insider” environmental education and recreation, a package is created that has proven irresistible to all but a few. Each and every expedition produces tangible results— trees planted, habitat restored or meadow reestablished. These outcomes spell success for every member on the team, and most look forward to on-going interaction with their contribution to the environment.

It’s an experience that will leave you with a lifetime of memories and personal rewards .

Schedule

Day 1

Your excursion begins at our secluded base camp in the heart of Sequoia National Park. After settling in, we will enjoy a festive dinner and meet with park staff for an overview of our upcoming adventure in Sequoia. Afterwards, we will hike into the world-renowned Giant Forest to get an incredible view of the General Sherman sequoia, the largest living tree on earth. This great tree is now estimated to be around 2300 years old and still "growing like a teenager". It is 275 feet tall and is 36 feet in diameter at the base. After our hike, we'll gather around the evening campfire to savor one of our chef's delectable desserts.
