Field Team Partners

The Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) partners with federal, state, municipal, and non-profit organizations. The primary focus of the MCC Field Team is construction and rehabilitation of recreational trails, but teams may also engage in a variety of other conservation projects. MCC projects must be on land open to the public.

MCC offers project planning and assessments at a daily rate. Please share your ideas and organizational needs.

Teams operate in groups of 3 or 6 from mid-June to mid-October annually. Our members are volunteers serving in the AmeriCorps National Service program. Field Team projects have included: stone work, bridging, erosion control structures, boundary line maintenance, and construction of new trail.

  • A team of 3 to 6 members, including a Team Leader
  • 9 to 15-week training for Team Leaders, depending on experience
  • Chainsaw Safety Training
  • One week Member Orientation
  • Hand tools and power tools for the projects
  • General project management and ongoing support to teams
