Our Programs

The Veteran Community Leader Program harnesses and expands upon the skills of Maine veterans to further the conservation efforts of non-profit, state or federal organizations. Veteran Community Leaders plan conservation projects; and recruit, train and lead volunteers in creating and improving recreational trail systems, while creating a sustainable and knowledgeable volunteer base.

Environmental Stewards serve individually with non-profits, state or federal agencies to increase organizational volunteer capacity by recruiting and training community volunteers in conservation projects; fund raise for assistance in conservation efforts; and aid in the implementation of host sites' land management plans.

The Field Team Program consists of trail crews that construct and rehabilitate recreational trails in places like Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, and on the Appalachian Trail, as well as land owned by local communities and land trusts.
