The Pennsylvania Outdoor Corp: Workforce Development for the Benefit of Conservation and Outdoor Recreation

2024
The goal of the Pennsylvania Outdoor Corp is to protect and restore the commonwealth’s lands and waters while providing young people with valuable paid work experience, skills training, and professional development, along with the knowledge and expertise to be good stewards of our natural resources. Managed in partnership between the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Student Conservation Association, the program connects youth and young adults with job opportunities in state parks and forestland, as well as in local parks and public lands throughout the state. Municipalities and non-profits can host PAOC crews on a cost-share basis to complete work on public lands. Typical projects include tree planting, riparian corridor improvement, mechanical invasive species removal, hiking trail improvements, light construction, community shade tree inventories, and young tree maintenance. Join us as we welcome DCNR staff for a brief overview of the program and how land managers can connect with the program for projects on their properties.
