Environmental Stewardship remains a core objective of AmeriCorps since its creation in 1994. PMSC members actively give their time, energy, and sometimes their hip waders to make our Earth a healthier planet. The first half of the 2013-14 service year alone, our members tested 642 miles of streams and helped restore 267 acres of land. Their environmental education efforts will have long term impact on how we preserve the ecosystems we love and need. It’s Earth Day and Arbor Day year round in Western Pennsylvania. To help with a project in your neck of the woods, visit our PMSC Calendar.
