The Superior Watershed Partnership is excited to announce the expansion of the Great Lakes Conservation Corps (GLCC). The GLCC serves as a vector of positive change for the Upper Peninsula’s watersheds, forests, and trail systems. Projects will be completed by several crews this summer. The crews will focus on U.P. wide conservation and will conduct environmentally focused projects to positively affect the greater Marquette area. GLCC crews offer opportunities to take part in a team environment and gain valuable conservation skills in the field. Crew members are 18-25 years old who are responsible, have a positive attitude, and desire to spend all summer outside. Do you want to leave a positive impact on the environment and earn a paycheck? Applicants must be able to work well in a  group setting, be willing to travel and camp on site (select crews), and be passionate about conservation work.
