How Do We #ServetheEarth on Native Lands?

On Earth Day, the AmeriCorps Southwest Conservation Corps’ Ancestral Lands program will engage community volunteers for a trash cleanup at Mentmore Park in Gallup, New Mexico. 

The Ancestral Lands program engages Native youth and young adults in meaningful conservation projects on Native Lands. With programs in Acoma Pueblo and Navajo Nation, Ancestral Lands members have been working on projects from historical preservation, chainsaw crews, hiking clubs, stream restoration, fencing, trail construction, and more. The Ancestral Lands program also aims to incorporate traditional culture and language as part of crew lifestyle and project work.

Wounded Warrior Riders Saluted for Service

President Obama and Vice President Biden welcomed the Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride to the White House in celebration of the eighth-annual Soldier Ride. 

Before meeting the President, all of the riders were presented with President’s Volunteer Service Awards in the White House Map Room by AmeriCorps Director Bill Basl.

The cycling event helps wounded veterans restore their physical and emotional well-being, and also raises awareness of our nation’s wounded warriors who battle the physical and psychological scars of war.
