DNR Looking For Paid Volunteers For Trail Work

Last updated on Monday, October 31, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS) (AP) - Indiana is looking for some volunteers for a new program called the Indiana Heritage Corps at four state parks.

The Department of Natural Resources says it wants to find 23 volunteers at least 17 years old to restore and construct a total of 20 miles of trails at Brown County, Pokagon, Fort Harrison, and O'Bannon Woods state parks.

The DNR says the volunteers would begin work late in January and live at the parks. They would receive on-site housing, a living allowance of $335 per month, an education stipend of $2,750, plus hands-on experience.
