Conservation Corps New Mexico (https://corpsnm.org/open-positons) is seeking motivated and experienced crew leaders for our upcoming season, April 2nd to Sept 21st. Crew leaders work with an assistant leader to supervise 6 AmeriCorps crew members in a wide variety of conservation related projects potentially including trail building, chainsaw operation, invasive species removal, fencing, watershed restoration and many other projects.
The typical schedule is 8 days spent camping at the project site with 6 days off to rest and explore the southwest. During the “hitch” crews work together during the day, eat and camp together in the evening and learn together throughout. Crews work in remote settings in all weather conditions. Depending on the project and location, crews may spend some of their season deep in the backcountry with little or no support.
Crew Leaders earn $460 – $600 per week depending on experience. During each hitch, food for cooking and campsites for lodging will be provided although personal camping gear is not. All members and leaders are responsible for finding their own accommodations on their 5 days off – CCNM does not provided off-time residences.
