Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC): Project A.N.T.
 
 
 
The Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC) AmeriCorps program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Florida Park Service with members serving in state parks throughout Florida. AmeriCorps members will serve under one of three Project areas, 50 as Project A.N.T. (AmeriCorps Nonnative plant Terminators), 10 as Project T.R.E.C. (Trail Restoration and Enhancement Corps), and 5 as Project R.O.A.R (Regional Outreach and Awareness Recruiters). Members serving under FLCC Project A.N.T. focus on habitat restoration through the management of invasive exotic plants. Members help to reduce invasive exotic plant infestations through various land management techniques and by recruiting volunteers from the community to help with this important restoration effort. They also educate park visitors about the importance of Florida’s ecosystems and issues of invasive exotic plants. To apply to a specific park, please visit https://jobs.myflorida.com/ and search the region you are interested in. Each service site will have one listing that can fill up to two AmeriCorps member positions at that specific park. APPLICATIONS RECEIVED VIA THE MY.AMERICORPS.GOV WEBSITE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNTIL DECEMBER 2017.
