Please join us in wishing good luck to the first ever group of Resilience AmeriCorps as they join Waders in the Water (WitW) graduates across the country working on-the-ground to help develop and implement local climate resilience plans.

Waders in the Water (WitW) graduates from a broad spectrum of conservation corps nationwide have been battling climate change since WitW was deployed almost two years ago.

Certified corpsmembers have worked on climate resilient projects including:

  • Wetland mitigation projects in multiple states to offset adverse development impacts
  • Stream restoration with the New Jersey Audubon Society
  • NFWF Wetland Restoration project in Washington, DC
  • Coastal stream and ecological data collection to support the Corps Network’s own Coastal Streams and Habitat Restoration and Management Initiative in the Gulf.

WitW was designed to introduce students to sustainable aquatic restoration techniques by teaching them how to improve the climate-resiliency of our streams, rivers, and wetlands while inspiring participants to become the next generation of stewards of our natural and cultural resources. It offers an opportunity to earn the only private restoration industry-recognized credential in the installation of aquatic restoration projects.

The planet we share, and the growing restoration economy needs a trained workforce now.
