Great Lakes Climate Corps

GLCC seasonal position applications will be posted in late-January or early February 2022.

Since 2000, GLCC crews have worked across jurisdictional boundaries in all fifteen counties of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to implement high priority, hands-on conservation, recreation, and restoration projects within three Great Lakes watersheds (Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron). GLCC crews are trained and supervised by experienced Crew Leaders and are equipped with a truck, tools, safety equipment, and camping gear for overnight stays at remote sites. All crews wear uniforms and receive first aid training along with other project-specific training prior to the field season. GLCC crews gain experience in a wide range of conservation and community projects including planting trees, building trail, recording data, restoring wetlands, protecting coastal habitat, and much more.

GLCC is available to partner with you on your 2022 project!
