Thanks to all of you who volunteered in 2013, you made a real difference! The Park welcomes Volunteers in the Park who can accomplish a variety of helpful tasks, from litter patrol, to trail maintenance, wildlife studies, painting out-buildings and more. There are opportunities for all ages, interests and abilities. Each year there is a schedule of planned volunteer activity in the Park. The 2014 schedule of FBSP volunteer activities will be posted in early 2014. Please check back on this website or contact us for more information. admin@friendsofbaxter.org

For opportunities to volunteer directly with BSP trail crews contact Ranger Ben Woodard at c.ben.woodard@maine.gov  More information is available of the BSP website: http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/volunteer

 


Chainsaw Training:

If you would like to be a sawyer for the chainsaw crews in Baxter State Park you must be certified by a course. Each year FBSP offers scholarships for this training. If you have at least a level B certification and your certificate runs out this year you may attend one of these courses for recertification.

The Maine Appalachian Trail Club has set the 2013 Chainsaw Safety Workshop schedule. Please keep an eye on their website (www.matc.org) for the most recent updates.
