MERE Project seeks Two ANE students to be Summit Stewards

The Monadnock Ecological Research and Education Project is seeking two energetic individuals to fill the trail stewardship positions for spring and fall 2009 at Monadnock State Park.

On the trials and summit of Mt. Monadnock stewards will engage visitors in friendly conversation to educate them about proper use of trails, and mountain ecology and safety. The trail stewards will be present on the mountain at peak user times (spring and fall weekends) with a focus on the summit area where plant communities are most endangered and active research plots will be visible.

Graduate student stewards will be supervised directly by Mt Monadnock State Park Manager, Patrick Hummel and indirectly by ANE faculty, Prof. Peter Palmiotto.

Stewards will have the opportunity to attend the ADK Mt Club summit stewardship training from June 1-5th.
Contact: Prof. Peter Palmiotto.

Applications will be accepted up to March 1st.
