The Mountains to Sound Greenway seeks a motivated, responsible individual to lead our 2024 trail crew!
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust works to steward a landscape that stretches 100 miles from the shores of Puget Sound, across the Cascade Mountains, to Central Washington. The Greenway Trust also coordinates the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area (NHA), which honors the historical and cultural significance of this place and helps to preserve and celebrate its living heritage. The Seasonal Trail Crew contributes to the goals of the NHA by improving recreational access to the Greenway’s network of 1000+ miles of wildland trails.
As a member of the Greenway Trust’s Field Program, you will have the opportunity to work as part of a team in an energetic, productive, and collaborative environment. Project work will focus on front country and backcountry trail maintenance and improvement projects that will include brushing and logout, tread repair, trail structure construction with rock and/or timber. The work is physically intensive, but also can be highly rewarding for team members. The Crew Leader is responsible for the safety, leadership, and oversight of the trail crew and works closely with the Greenway Trust project manager and other staff to develop and effectively communicate project plans and expectations to crew members.
This is a full-time, 7.5-month seasonal position with the possibility for short-term extension. Season Length: Mid-March through mid-October 2024. The Trail Crew periodically supports Greenway Trust volunteer and education events and works regularly with Greenway Trust staff and occasionally with partner agency and nonprofit staff, sponsored AmeriCorps members, and volunteers.
