Members serve at host sites around the state.

ECO AmeriCorps' focus is to provide capacity for organizations to complete projects around the state within water quality, waste management, and conservation fields. This is accomplished through supporting our members, providing professional development, mentoring, and a sense of community. 

We partner with local municipalities, conservation districts, solid waste management districts, other state departments, and non-profits to host AmeriCorps members. Visit our Host Organizations page to see where members are currently serving.
