DNR is seeking volunteers

The Department of Natural Resources is seeking 38 volunteers to work on trails this summer at four state parks for the Indiana Heritage Corps program.

IHC is an AmeriCorps program administered through the DNR Division of State Parks and Reservoirs.

IHC volunteers receive on-site housing, a living allowance, an education stipend and hands-on experience, as well as a chance to earn college internship credit.

Interns will work at Pokagon in Angola, Fort Harrison in Indianapolis, Brown County in Nashville and O'Bannon Woods in Corydon. They will clean, restore and construct 25 miles of trail in the four parks.

Candidates should be at least 17 years old, U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, be able to pass an FBI background check and be able to commit to the program from May 13 through Aug. 16.

Candidates should email a resume and cover letter to indianaheritagecorps @dnr.IN.gov. More information is available at dnr.IN.gov/parklake/7252.htm.
