APPLICATIONS HAVE CLOSED FOR RACHEL CARSON NWR CREWS

Every summer Northwoods Stewardship Center partners with the US Fish & Wildlife Service to hire local youth who work at National Wildlife Refuges across New England. This summer Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) will host a Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) team at our location in Wells, Maine. 

The crew leader and members must be willing to meet the mental and physical challenges of working in the outdoors by demonstrating maturity, enthusiasm, and a strong work ethic. A commitment to the environment and to your local communities is essential. 

YCC Members receive a weekly wage, hands-on education, and employment experience. Crew leaders must be 19 years of age and above, and members 14-20 years of age.
