Trail Mix now taking applications for summer trail crew

Trail Mix Inc., a local nonprofit which works to maintain and improve local trails, is now hiring seasonal field crews to work from mid-May until the snow flies next fall.

Crews work four consecutive 10-hour days with three days off. The nonprofit is also looking for Work Crew Leaders who are familiar with tools, equipment, safety precautions, trail-maintenance and trail-building techniques and who demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities. Trail Mix provides tools, equipment, hard hats, and safety training but not other outdoor gear for crew members.

Additional staff may be hired throughout the summer.
