Appalachian Conservation Corps (ACC) works to connect young people to critical conservation service work across Appalachia and neighboring communities in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Maryland, DC, and Pennsylvania.

Projects take place across the Appalachian Region, including work with the US Forest Service, the National Park Service, and other land managers. During their time in the field, Crew Members camp overnight and work outdoors in all types of weather conditions. The hands-on projects will focus on building mountain bike-specific trail to International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) standards and completing technical stonework with rigging equipment. Projects require hiking out to remote work sites for the day with tools, equipment, and day pack.

Typically, Crew Members will meet at the ACC Office in Harrisonburg, travel in a crew vehicle to their project site and remain in the field for 9-10 days at a time, followed by 4-5 days off. While in the field, Crew Members work 8-10 hours a day.
