In addition to the weekly living stipend, Conservation Land Stewards are provided group housing at the Mead Base Conservation Center in the heart of the Lakes Region near the White Mountains, lakes and rivers that make this region so beautiful and unique.
The trainings, certifications, and experiences that members obtain develop important professional skills that are applicable to future careers within any occupational and educational field.
