Overview

AMC is looking for new Volunteer Naturalists for Medawisla Lodge. Medawisla offers hiking, paddling, biking, and fly fishing opportunities in the heart of Maine's 100-Mile Wilderness. Receive free meals and lodging while you volunteer! Medawisla Volunteers are passionate about helping people enjoy the outdoors and learn about the natural world. They lead nature walks and evening programs, orient guests to the facility, and offer advice about hiking, paddling, fishing, and biking. Essential qualifications include familiarity with the natural history of the Maine Woods, the ability to create and deliver natural history programs, experience leading nature walks, and an outgoing, friendly personality. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and pass a criminal background check. Schedule: Volunteer opportunities are in July, August, and September, for full weekends, sets of weekdays, or single days (if living locally). Most people volunteer two or three weekends a year, or the equivalent in weekdays. Commitment: Commit to volunteering at least 32 hours per year, for at least three years. Participate in training each spring for the first two years as a volunteer, and once every three years after that. Benefits: Free meals & lodging, and retail discounts, while volunteering! 2021 Training: Training sessions will be held online in late spring, followed by a half-day on-site orientation in late June.
