We at CSNC firmly believe in the importance and necessity of our national service organizations. As you may know, the AmeriCorps members serving at the Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation help make our ongoing restoration work in the Eldorado National Forest possible. In El Dorado County, AmeriCorps members are also serving at American River Conservancy and Resource Conservation District. These organizations would be unable to accomplish many of their goals without the service of these dedicated young people. Some in Washington are proposing to eliminate funding for AmeriCorps.

Please take a moment to contact your member of Congress by clicking here. Tell them that you support AmeriCorps and want to protect funding for national service.
