8 Times AmeriCorps Worked at the Accokeek Foundation

AmeriCorp Week

This week is AmeriCorps Week and to celebrate, I’ve put together a list of the amazing AmeriCorps members who have served as volunteers at the foundation over the last two years. They’ve done everything from mucking barns to building bluebird nest boxes, and we owe the success of several programs to their dedication and support.  I will never fail to get excited when I see an e-mail from an AmeriCorps group in my inbox, and I hope to continue partnering with these special people for years to come.

The Spruce 6 FEMA Corps team volunteered twice during the Spring of 2013 and accomplished an incredible amount during those few hours. On their first trip to the site, they attended the Earthfest volunteer event and cleared an entire fence line on the National Colonial Farm of the multiflora rose vines threatening to pull it down. As if that wasn’t enough, they came back again to assist livestock manager, Polly, with repairing the barnyard fence and creating new paths in and out of the barn.
