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. You will not be able to specify your preferred state park placement at this time. Qualified applicants will be contacted for a pre-screening, at which time, program staff will provide the list of available locations for your consideration. If you wish to be considered for Project T.R.E.C. you will need to submit your application to those project listings as well.
