Employer
Montana Conservation Corps

Montana Conservation Corps is a nonprofit organization that empowers youth and young adults through hands-on conservation service and education. Each season we enroll over 300 young adults from across the country, age 18 and up, in our AmeriCorps program, and more than 100 local teens, ages 15 to 17, in our Youth Service Expedition program. Our members live, learn and serve together, in crews of six to eight members, in some of our country’s wildest places. They complete conservation projects in local communities, national forests, state and national parks, wildlife refuges and federally designated wilderness areas. Participants receive the experience of a lifetime through challenging projects and the rigors of camp life, coupled with education aimed at creating engaged citizens and lifelong environmental stewards. All of these factors create an ideal situation for personal growth that leads to increased confidence, communication and leadership skills, and the ability to work well with people from all walks of life.

Historic Preservation
Type
Professional Opportunity
Location
Bozeman, MT
Details
$504 bi-weekly
 

At first glance, Montana may not seem like a state in need of a historic overhaul. Long before it achieved statehood in the late 19th century, fur traders and explorers were already venturing deep into the frontier establishing outposts to reap the rewards of the region. Once word of the splendors that awaited prospectors and travelers alike got out, entrepreneurs began bringing infrastructure to the state. Over a century later many of these iconic structures are in need of rehabilitation. Historic preservation crew members address the critical needs of these iconic structures in high traffic tourist areas around the state. Although the historic preservation crew does a very specific type of work in a more public setting that is less remote than our field crews, the crew experience is similar to our Field Corps Member opportunities.

Qualifications:

  • Previous carpentry, basic historic preservation and knowledge of wide range of hand tools
  • Ability to lift up to 20 lbs. repeatedly and use hand tools
  • High school diploma, GED, or readiness to take the GED
  • US Citizenship
