Rural Action Ohio Stream Restore Corps
 
 
 
Rural Action is a membership-based non-profit organization promoting social, economic and environmental justice in Appalachian Ohio. Rural Action employs an integrated strategy of economic renewal to build social capacity and civic democracy building on local assets to create long-term solutions for problems. Rural Action hosts thirty-one Ohio Stream Restore Corps (OSRC) AmeriCorps members building on a successful program across the coal mining region of Appalachian Ohio. OSRC is currently recruiting for a December-December term at Licking Soil and Water Conservation District in Newark, Ohio. OSRC's main outcomes are improved waterways, better managed public and private natural resources, a system of public education around the region's assets and natural history that connects to a ladder of tourism and restoration development opportunities. Members assist in natural resource restoration in the region through activities including: education, volunteer mobilization, and events such as cleanups, watershed and historical tours and building local stewardship toward natural resources. Other activities include environmental training for residents and youth through school-based and community activities such as day camps, library programs, and after-school activities. Program goals also include training local teachers to incorporate outdoor learning into their classrooms; education around waste and recycling issues; and public education to explore economic development opportunities through heritage tourism.
