It's that time of the year again!
We are scouring the countryside for another band of amazing interns.
Last year's interns had a positive impact throughout the Northern Forest. Whether guiding a youth group on an educational paddling trip through the lakes and rivers of New Hampshire, building a stone staircase on the Permenant Rapids Carry in New York, or reaching out to NFCT members, the effort was tremendous.
This year, with continued support from the Adirondack Watershed Alliance and dollars generated through the NFCT Trail Fund, we will field 4 Roving Stewardship Interns, and with Department of Justice funding we will field 3 Youth Program Interns.
Stewardship Intern Opportunities
Roving Stewardship Interns will complete trail work along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, living in a tent with other interns, staff, and volunteers. There will be opportunities for project coordination as well as hands-on field work ranging from sign installation, to stream bank stabilization, to stone staircase construction.
