Veterans Volunteer Corps

THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN FULLY FUNDED BY JOHN & SARAH GRAVES

The veteran volunteer corps is a new project that aims to bring together a crew of volunteer veterans with valuable military trades alongside necessary Glacier National Park projects. For two weeks they will work on a variety of projects throughout the park.

This program is in partnership with the Montana Conservation Corps who are responsible for the recruitment and training of this crew. In providing this opportunity for veterans to work on conservation projects, they will 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 solitude 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 would create a positive impact on the visitors and the resources at Glacier National Park.
