SNAP will begin a new term of our highly successful AmeriCorps program in the Sierra Nevada in October 2020, placing 25 highly qualified and motivated, full-time AmeriCorps members at conservation organizations and natural resource agencies serving the 400 mile long ‘Range of Light’. These Members will serve until mid-September 2021.
The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, a program of the Sierra Nevada Alliance, will choose host sites from Sierra Nevada conservation organizations and agencies as Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership Host Sites for the 2021 SNAP Program’s Full Term Members. The application period for the 2021 Program will be open from April 15th through May 22nd, and will consider applications from California organizations as well as from Nevada-based organizations who do a significant amount of work in California.
From Mt. Whitney to the Feather River, from the foothills to the summits, at organizations both big and small, our AmeriCorps Members have contributed to restoring the health of the Sierra’s precious watersheds through important service projects. SNAP Members have removed invasive species, stabilized stream banks, educated thousands of Sierra Nevada residents on local and regional watershed issues, cleaned up hundreds of miles of river, built dozens of trails, monitored water quality at hundreds of sites and much, much more.
Qualifying organizations will receive a full-time AmeriCorps Member or Members to serve at their organization/agency from mid October – mid-September 2021. SNAP Members conduct valuable watershed restoration and assessment projects, as well as watershed education projects, and volunteer recruitment and support.
