Call for ADK trailhead stewards at Heart Lake

Applications are open for ADK trailhead stewards at Heart Lake. The following is an announcement from the main organization. If you are interested in volunteering as a trailhead steward, please read below and fill out an application.

The ADK Trailhead Stewardship Program @ Heart Lake is one of ADK’s most successful high-profile programs. Perhaps you have met one of our Trailhead Stewards at the High Peaks Information Center (HPIC). We greet hikers, answer questions and help folks make good decisions for a safe and enjoyable outing. Thorough training in Leave No Trace principles, Authority of the Resource Technique of hiker interaction, NYSDEC Central High Peaks regulations, and your hiking experience and knowledge of the trails that start at Heart Lake will give you the confidence to help us achieve program goals.
Weekend and holiday shifts are available. July and August shifts are weeklong, but there is the possibility of “split shifts” and substitute shifts. Generous volunteer benefits are included.
Applications for the 2022 season are now open. 
Please contact Bobby Clark, HPIC manager bclark@adk.org, or myself if you have any questions or would like more information.
Attached you will find an application, info letter, and program manual with all of the specifics.
