Volunteer Veterans' Conservation Corp provides opportunities for veterans to continue serving their country by assisting with and developing projects to enhance our state parks and natural areas. The VVCC is a cooperative effort of the the Illinois Department of Natural Resources at VBSNA, MHSP & MD, Friends of Volo Bog and Friends of Moraine Hills State Park with additional support provided by the Veterans Assistance Commission of McHenry County. Natural Resources Coordinator Stacy Iwanicki, advisor to the VVCC, emphasizes how the corps is bringing veterans from different generations and conflicts together around a common cause - protection and enhancement of the natural environment in Illinois.
