AmeriCorps Lends a Hand at Clarkco State Park

AmeriCorps team, Bayou 6, has been lending a hand at Clarkco State Park. During March they put down crush-n-run gravel on hiking trails, de-limbed and painted center-line on the park roads, prepared soil and laid erosion control fabric near cabins, installed drainage pipes on walking trails, and laid new crossties in the campground. They even split firewood for campers in their off time. 

 “The team has been a great help here at Clarkco and I could not ask for any better work ethic than the team has provided,” said Clarkco State Park manager Tony Fleming.

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women, age 18-24. AmeriCorps NCCC requires an intensive, 10-month commitment. Members serve in teams of eight to twelve and are assigned to projects throughout the region by their campus.
