Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC)
 
 
 
The Florida Conservation Corps (FLCC) program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Florida Park Service with members serving at state parks throughout Florida. Members serving under FLCC Project A.N.T. (AmeriCorps Nonnative plant Terminators) 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. Educating park visitors about the importance of Florida’s ecosystems and issues of invasive exotic plants is also an important piece. Project A.N.T. members also assist with making trail improvements including maintaining trails for visitor use, developing trail interpretive and informational materials and conducting assesments of trail user accessibility and environmental impact. You will not be able to specify your preferred placement at this time. Once you submit your application, if you are selected for a pre-screening, program staff will contact you to determine your preferred placements. At that point, you will be able to indicate which state park placement is your first, second, and third choice.

Member Duties : Florida Conservation Corps members serving as part of Project A.N.T. (AmeriCorps Non-native plant Terminators) focus on invasive exotic plant management and trail improvement in Florida's state parks. Members spend a majority of their time outdoors treating and removing invasive exotic plants, surveying for invasive exotic plants and performing trail improvements. Members use various techniques such as herbicide spraying and prescribed fire to reduce infestations. Members also recruit volunteers to assist with invasive exotic plant management, and educate park visitors and the local community about harm caused by invasive exotic plants. Additionally, Project A.N.T. members perform trail improvements by assisting with the maintenance of current trails, helping clear new trails, developing interpretive and informational materials and conducting trail user accessibility and environmental impact assessments.
