NFCT Seeking Interns for 2023 Season

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) is seeking three interns for its 2023 stewardship program.

NFCT stewardship interns work with staff and volunteers to complete projects along the 740-mile waterway trail that traverses New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire and Maine. Projects include campsite, river access and portage trail development and maintenance projects along the NFCT. Interns will also have the opportunity to coordinate volunteer waterway work trips.

Internships are field-based and full time. Internship goals include building competence in trail work, erosion control, and stewardship techniques, completing hands-on, meaningful public access projects, practicing teamwork, leadership, and volunteer management skills, and obtaining experiences that help prepare interns for a future career in conservation, natural resources management, and related fields. All interns receive a $400/week stipend, food, training in paddling skills, timber and stonework, erosion control, leadership, volunteer management and more.

The internship program runs from June 5 to Aug. 11. Strong applicants will have an interest in a career in conservation, recreation and related fields, prior experience living and working outdoors, and training in wilderness first aid.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 24. For more information and to apply, click here. Interested applicants can also contact NFCT Stewardship Director Noah Pollock at [email protected] or (802) 496-2285 ext. 2.
