The Monadnock Ecological Research and Education Project is seeking energetic individuals to fill the summit stewardship positions for 2012-2013 at Monadnock State Park mostly on weekends and holidays. 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 (weekends and holidays) with a focus on the summit area where plant communities are most endangered. Stewards will have the opportunity to attend the ADK Mt Club summit stewardship training in late May. This can be used as a paid internship.
Outgoing, energetic individual with basic ecological knowledge. First aid training and prior outdoor education experience desired.
