Volunteer Opportunities and Events
The Maine Conservation Corps welcomes volunteers to join our members and teams on projects throughout the state. Individuals and groups are invited to help out with projects like trail construction & maintenance, watershed surveys, invasive species removal, and many other conservation efforts.
Volunteers under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign their Volunteer Card. To volunteer without an accompanying adult, children must be at least 16 years old. MCC volunteers without their own health insurance can be covered during their volunteer service by the MCC's SERVE/Maine Accident Insurance Policy. To be covered by the policy, volunteers must be at least 14 years old.
Our field season has ended but we continue to look for help at the MCC office.
Come volunteer with the MCC!
