In a world increasingly defined by connectivity and shared values, ACE believes that the opportunity to restore America’s natural wonders should not be limited by nationality or confined by racial or ethnic divisions. ACE’s Conservation Volunteer participants come from throughout the United States and from nations around the world to volunteer for 6 weeks or more in exchange for food, dormitory style housing, and the chance to contribute to vital ecological restoration and recreation management projects.
Conservation Volunteers serve in small teams on direct service projects for the National Park Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and other public and private land management agencies throughout the United States. By attracting a diverse community of conservation-minded volunteers, ACE contributes to the breakdown of cultural barriers while advancing ecological awareness on a global scale.
