Community Conservation Corps

CCC Opportunities

Modeled after the Depression-era CCC, RLHT’s Community Conservation Corps provides healthy outdoor opportunities for our community to maintain and improve our region’s recreational infrastructure. 

Trail Monitor

TM commit to walking a trail every two weeks throughout a season. Then use their smartphone to complete a Trail Hazard and Maintenance Report. The app is a NEW resource to keep our trails open and accessible!

Trail Ambassador

Love to take photos and talk to people? We are always in need of photographs of visitors on conservation lands. We also love to hear their connections to the area and record use details.

Trail Steward

TS work with RLHT staff to maintain a different our trails and those of our partner's. They are available to work on special projects, e.g., bog bridging, replacing picnic tables, resurfacing paths, etc.

Water Quality Monitor

WQM commits to collecting Secchi data every two weeks from ice-out to ice-in. They also document Total Phosphorus and Dissolved Oxygen data. WQM can submit data from their smartphone!

Invasive Plant Patrol

Adopt Your Shoreline! In August and early September, IPP inventory and identify aquatic invaders in a section of shoreline. Training is online, AND data is submitted electronically!

Loon Counter

One Saturday each July, volunteers take to Maine's Lakes and Ponds to document our Common Loon population. We regionally support Maine Audubon's Annual Loon Count.
