Executive Summary

American Conservation Experience (ACE) proposes to have 100 AmeriCorps members who will improve at-risk ecosystems and develop more sustainable communities in Arizona, California, Utah, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for improving or constructing 30 miles of trails or waterways and improving or restoring 400 acres of public lands. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 100 community volunteers who will be engaged in environmental stewardship, community development, resource management, and ecosystem improvement projects in the local community.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Environmental Stewardship - 21st Century Conservation Corps. The CNCS investment of $20,000 will be matched with $1,180,00 in public funding.
