Conservation Corps

Illinois Veterans interested in working on a volunteer basis on projects that restore Illinois' natural habitat can join the Veterans Conservation Corps today!

Many Veterans want to continue to serve their community even after their military duties are completed. By becoming a member of the Conservation Corps, you volunteer and become part of a team that is dedicated to protect our natural resources, as well as gain new skills and knowledge as you work with our natural resource professionals and connect with people who have the same interests.

The State of Illinois encourages all those who have served their country in uniform and are willing to share their knowledge and give their valuable time to join the Veterans Conservation Corps! The Veterans Conservation Corps is a joint program from the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs and in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Volunteers are needed and the opportunities are varied, so there is something for everyone. If you are interested in becoming a member of Conservation Corps, please contact IDVA's local Veteran Service Office in your area.
