La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Eight WisCorps crews kicked off their summer work projects Friday afternoon.

About 50 young adults will work on conservation and revitalization projects over the course of four to eight weeks. Some of those include creating new recreational trails at the La Crosse County Landfill, neighborhood revitalization in the City of La Crosse and planting in neighborhood parks.

"Working in their city parks, getting skills and resume building, also first aid, CPR, disaster response... just getting them ready for the work force," WisCorps Operations Director Willie Bittner said.

Since it's founding in 2009, WisCorps has sent 90 crews and more than 1000 young adults to work on conservation projects.
