The event was organized by the Student Conservation Association, an AmeriCorps organization. On April 21, Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act that intends to more than triple the AmeriCorps volunteers to over 250,000, costing taxpayers roughly a billion dollars a year over the next five years.
