About Us

The Maryland Conservation Corps Program engages 35 young adults ages 17-25 in AmeriCorps national service positions, funded in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism (GOSV), The Corps Network, and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).


The program’s mission is to provide the youth and citizens of Maryland opportunities for personal growth through conservation and community service.

With the supervision of experienced Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) staff, MCC crew members engage in projects in Maryland's most beautiful places. Crews are placed throughout the state, specializing in services such as environmental education, park operations, stream monitoring, trail maintenance and construction, park improvements, invasive species removal, waterway restoration, providing disaster services, and habitat restoration. A crew’s specialties are determined by the environmental and recreational needs of its region. 

In an average year, MCC members will:

  • Plant thousands of trees
  • Maintain hundreds of miles of trails
  • Work with schools to plant bay grasses
  • Restore wildlife habitat
  • Conduct interpretive programs in state parks
  • Support the improvement of the Chesapeake and Coastal Bays
  • Improve park nature centers
  • Help preserve Maryland’s rich historical heritage
  • Provide environmental education programming for roughly 10,000 Maryland students
