We tag along with volunteers from AmeriCorps to learn about recent efforts to beautify the national parks and forests in our region. The AmeriCorps team, which is comprised of individuals from all over the country, has been rebuilding hiking trails at Panther's Den in the Shawnee National Forest. The trail rebuilding project is just one of many activities that supports the organization's mission in civic responsibility, education, and public service. AmeriCorps is a federally-funded program open to local and national organizations that focuses on skill-building and community service activities for 18-24 year-olds who are unsure of what they what to do in life.
