Our affinity crews create an inclusive space for groups that have been under-represented to gain hands-on experience, technical skills training, and professional development. These crews foster a safer, more comfortable learning environment where participants are able to maximize their opportunities to grow and develop. The term “Women’s+” aims to be inclusive of trans, non-binary, genderfluid individuals, and cis-women. We acknowledge the value of peer groups, with common experiences and challenges, being given space to come together to work, create, and contribute in their own unique ways, and we are excited for the opportunity to amplify the work of those who have not always been welcomed in this field.

As an AmeriCorps program participant with this Long-Term Conservation Crew, you will find yourself traversing remote mountain landscapes, exploring the wilderness, and learning how to function as a cohesive group. The expedition style allows crews to obtain proficiency in crew dynamics, project logistics, and technical knowledge.
