Job Overview

Position Summary:

The Women’s+ Advanced Saw Crew Member position is a role on a single-identity, all-female crew. Crew Members are supported on a variety of levels, by their Crew Leaders, Program Staff & Project Partners, and Conservation Legacy Staff. This crew will be expected to safely use chainsaws, crosscut saws, and other trail tools to complete a variety of conservation projects in partnership with local public land managers. The Women’s+ Advanced Saw Crew provides a supportive learning environment where women work, learn from, and grow with one another while improving upon their existing chainsaw skills and certifications to propel them into a career in environmental stewardship. We ask that Crew Members embrace learning opportunities, face challenges, and build community with their crew.

Project Work:

Projects take place across the Appalachian Region, including work with the US Forest Service, the National Park Service, and other land managers. During their time in the field, Crew Members camp overnight and work outdoors in all types of weather conditions, performing heavy manual labor related to environmental conservation and restoration projects. These hands-on projects include visitor access improvements, trail construction and maintenance, habitat restoration, invasive species treatments, historic restoration, disaster relief, and much more. Most projects require hiking out to remote work sites for the day with tools, equipment, and day pack.
