ROME — An AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) team of seven young men and women from across the country will be serving with The Central Wisconsin Nature Foundation (CWNF) from May 29 – June 29, 2017.
The team will be [helping improve the trails, beach and general infrastructure of the CWNF property located on County Z, Town of Rome, Adams County (known as Twin Lakes Park). They will also help some other community organizations with some small projects.
The AmeriCorps NCCC team from the North Central Region campus of Vinton, Iowa are committed to helping government and non-profit agencies in various community improvement activities and disaster relief. Through their service, AmeriCorps NCCC members will be helping improve the property of the CWNF for greater use by the public for hiking, beachcombing, wildlife viewing, and other nature-related recreational activities.
“An Americorps team helped improve camping facilities at Adams County Parks a few years ago, so I got a chance to see how much work they can accomplish and how much they can add to a community,” said Reesa Evans, vice-president of CWNF. “The CWNF is a small foundation with limited capacities; having this team will allow us to accomplish many of our goals to improve and expand conservation knowledge and opportunities in the Central Wisconsin area,”
Other officers are Paul Pisellini, president; Patt Pisellini, secretary; and Dave Trudeau, treasurer.
This event takes place at 361 Yeoman Ct., on Lake Sherwood.
