The Maine Conservation Corps was established by Maine’s governor and legislature in 1983 and since then has recruited and placed hundreds of members who have accomplished countless natural resource projects all over Maine.
Since 1993 the MCC has supported the goals of AmeriCorps with our members Getting Things Done.
According to our statute, the mission of the Maine Conservation Corps is to:
Accomplish outdoor recreation and conservation projects: This is the primary focus of all MCC programs. Members build and rehabilitate campsites and trails (more non-motorized trails than any other organization in Maine), build outdoor learning centers for schools, construct cabins, picnic shelters, bridges and erosion control structures, maintain boundaries, improve wildlife habitat and timber stands, survey watersheds, test water quality, and oversee planting projects.
