The Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s mission is to protect, manage, and advocate for the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Our vision is that the Appalachian Trail and its surrounding landscape are protected forever for all to enjoy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity for life-changing discovery on the Appalachian Trail.

Position Summary

The Land Stewardship Team upholds a high standard for the protection of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) Corridor, a long strip of conserved public land that forms the longest continuous natural corridor east of the Mississippi River.

Land Stewardship Technicians monitor the A.T. Corridor, maintain its surveyed boundaries, and work to mitigate any encroachments they find. Backcountry fieldwork is the primary function of these positions. The Land Stewardship Field Coordinator trains, directs, supports, and works alongside the Land Stewardship Technicians.

Four Technicians will be hired for a 22-week season, from June through October. One Field Coordinator will be hired for a 24-week season, from late-May through early-November. Fieldwork will occur along the Appalachian Trail primarily in Maine, and possibly in other New England states depending on COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Employees are required to fulfill Maine’s travel requirements and ATC’s standard operating procedures intended to minimize the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided.
