Our mission is to accomplish conservation initiatives that inspire individuals and enrich communities. MCC operates an AmeriCorps program with two service options.
Environmental Stewards are paired with conservation organizations throughout Maine. These positions offer a unique opportunity to gain skills in the conservation field while increasing the capacity of local organizations. Stewards receive training, certifications and benefits as an AmeriCorps member. The role of an Environmental Steward is as varied as the needs of host sites. A sample of past projects include:
Our Field Team Program consists of trail crews that construct and rehabilitate sustainable trails in places like Baxter State Park, and on the Appalachian Trail, as well as land owned by local communities and land trusts. Field Teams consist of leadership placements, which include up to 15 weeks of training. Leadership training begins in February with returning or experienced leaders joining the training in April. Field Team Members begin service in June and continue to mid-October.
