SNAP began a new term of our highly successful AmeriCorps program in the Sierra Nevada in October 2019. SNAP placed 25 highly qualified and motivated, full-time AmeriCorps members at California and Nevada conservation organizations and natural resource agencies serving the 400 mile long ‘Range of Light’. These Members will serve mid-October 2019 – mid-September 2020.
The SNAP Half Term program will begin on April 6, 2020, with full-time members serving with Sierra Host Sites until mid-September 2020. We are looking to fill eight half-term positions for 2020.
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 2020 SNAP Program’s Half Term Members. The application period for the 2020 Program will be open from November 25th through January 10th, 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 numerous 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 early April – mid-September 2020. SNAP Members conduct valuable watershed restoration and assessment projects, as well as watershed education projects, and volunteer recruitment and support.
