NFCT hiring for 2024 stewardship season

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) is now hiring to fill out its 2024 stewardship crew. A total of seven positions are available: six paid internships and one crew leader for the Allagash field team. The stewardship crew works with the NFCT‘s year-round staff and volunteers across New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine to complete projects that enhance access and protect against environmental degradation along the 740-mile waterway trail that begins in Old Forge, NY, and ends in Fort Kent, Maine.

“This year, we are working with our partners in Maine to implement an ambitious stewardship plan along the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, a remote and beautiful section of the NFCT,” said Noah Pollock, the NFCT‘s stewardship director. “That project has necessitated us more than doubling the size of our stewardship crew — 2024 will be a big year for us.”

Three interns will join the roving team, which will work across the entire canoe trail under the guidance of Pollock and the NFCT‘s new assistant trail director, Alex Delhagen. The second group of interns will work with the Allagash Stewardship Crew Leader.
