Happy AmeriCorps week! Did you know that the Balsam Mountain Trust has hosted four AmeriCorps members? They have allowed the Trust to reach even more community members in outreach programing than previously possible.

AmeriCorps members are individuals who dedicate their time to serving their country through community service. AmeriCorps programs are very diverse and can tackle anything from homelessness to disaster relief. The Trust's AmeriCorps member is a part of Conservation Trust for North Carolina's AmeriCorps, a program that focuses on environmental education, land stewardship, and volunteer coordination. Eliza, our current AmeriCorps member serves as our Education Outreach Coordinator.
