The Veterans Green Corps aims to bring together a crew of volunteer veterans with valuable military trades alongside critical Glacier National Park projects. For two weeks they will work on a variety of projects throughout the park.

This program, in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps who are responsible for the recruitment and training of this crew, will provide an opportunity for veterans to work on conservation projects, gain additional valuable work experience, and be provided with the necessary skills to be competitive for jobs within the National Park Service. This opportunity is a means for veterans to reconnect with nature and find camaraderie while continuing to serve their country in a different capacity.

The veterans will assist on a variety of projects including trail maintenance, research for Citizen Science, and preservation of historic structures. All of these projects create a positive impact on the visitors and the resources at Glacier National Park.
