Lake Champlain Boat Launch Stewards
The Lake Champlain Basin Program and New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) are seeking part-time boat launch stewards to deliver interpretive invasive species spread prevention messages to boaters on Lake Champlain during the summer of 2017 and to inspect and decontaminate vessels as appropriate.
Boat Launch Stewards will interact with the public and gather lake-user information on mobile tablets while greeting visitors to Lake Champlain. Their primary duty will be to familiarize the public with invasive species information. Some steward candidates with comfort and experience will be trained to conduct vessel inspections and hot water high-pressure decontaminations as necessary. This will include set up, operation, and maintenance of the decontamination units. Stewards will be requested to work eight-hour days for approximately thirty-two hours per week at select boat launches around Lake Champlain from Memorial Day through Labor Day; weekend work is required. Time off by prior arrangement can be accommodated. Mandatory training will begin the week of May 15th and a training in Paul Smiths College Adirondack Watershed Institute will be held the week of May 22nd.
The successful candidate will be well organized and have excellent communication skills, experience speaking with the public, demonstrated data collection and recording using a mobile tablet, familiarity with invasive species, and field work experience. Candidates will be comfortable working in the field and have the physical capability to inspect trailered vessels. Experience operating watercraft and /or motorized equipment and basic familiarity with boaters, anglers, and recreational equipment will be useful. Highly motivated individuals with familiarity with invasive species and/or water recreation experience are encouraged to apply. Driver’s license required.
