MCC’s Environmental Stewards assist agencies with a wide variety of projects including water quality testing, wildlife protection, interpretive programming, trail improvements, volunteer recruitment, outreach, land stewardship and much more.
Host Site and Position Overview:
Bradbury Mountain State Park is a wonderful place to spend a day or afternoon exploring trails, taking in the magnificent view from the summit, or enjoying a picnic under a canopy of trees. One of the original five Maine state parks, Bradbury Mountain was acquired by the Federal government in 1939.
The Environmental Steward (ES) will be creating and executing interpretive programs to our visitors, provide help in maintaining and restoring trails, and lead outreach and educational programs to organized groups that come to the park. The ES will collaborate with and lead volunteer groups on park projects, help conduct fieldwork and research management of invasive species at Bradbury and Mackworth Island, and help with the management plan of the park within the mission of the Bureau of Parks and Lands. An ES at Bradbury will also help to carry out these same goals and objectives at Mackworth Island and the Bradbury Pineland Corridor.
An ES will have opportunities to develop professionally at Bradbury. There are many types of recreational visitors, each with their own special needs. The ES will be collaborating closely with all groups. The ES will be able to participate in any park training; First Aid and CPR, UTV training and other trainings as offered.
