Historic Preservation Crew Member (AmeriCorps)
Montana Conservation Corps
Posted 4/2/2015
At first glance, Montana may not seem like a state in need of a historic overhaul. Long before it achieved statehood in the late 19th century, fur traders and explorers were already venturing deep into the frontier establishing outposts to reap the rewards of the region. Once word of the splendors that awaited prospectors and travelers alike got out, entrepreneurs began bringing infrastructure to the state. Over a century later many of these iconic structures are in need of rehabilitation. Historic preservation crew members address the critical needs of these iconic structures in high traffic tourist areas around the state. Although the historic preservation crew does a very specific type of work in a more public setting that is less remote than our field crews, the crew experience is similar to our Field Corps Member opportunities.
