Courtesy Boat Inspector


CBIs are the “first line of defense” against harmful invasive aquatic plants and animals that hitch rides on boats and trailers, spreading from lake to lake. CBIs work at public boat launches checking incoming and outgoing boats and educating the public about invasive species. CBIs serve a vital role in protecting our lakes from the devastating impacts of invasives, while spending time at beautiful lakeside locations.

Youth Conservation Corps Crew


Our YCC crew works with shorefront property owners to prevent erosion and runoff, safeguarding our lakes, ponds, and streams from non-point source pollution, which can cause harmful algal blooms and other water quality problems. This is a hands-on, labor-intensive, and rewarding opportunity for high school and college students who want to get their hands dirty while protecting our lakes as part of a fun, supportive team.

Youth Conservation Corps Crew Leader


The crew leader oversees the YCC crew (see above) and plays an important role in working with 30 Mile’s Program Manager and communicating with landowners. The crew leader should have experience with erosion control practices and/or a background in landscaping, construction, or related field.

Invasive Aquatic Plant Survey Team


The survey team will conduct lake surveys by kayak for invasive aquatic plants, focusing on the harmful invasive variable leaf watermilfoil in Androscoggin Lake in Wayne. The goals of the program are to eradicate the invasive milfoil from Androscoggin Lake and to detect early any infestations on other lakes.

Water Quality Monitoring Intern


Through 30 Mile’s water quality monitoring program, we collect extensive data to track the health of our lakes and ponds. Routine monitoring is conducted by trained staff alongside volunteers on eleven lakes and ponds in our watershed.
