Volunteers are the lifeblood of the AMC. Please consider helping out the Maine Chapter, and have fun at the same time! There is something for everyone, whether it involves staffing an AMC table at an event, doing trail maintenance, leading a trip, or serving on one of the Chapter’s committees. Please be an active part of the Maine Chapter and meet like-minded people who share a passion for the outdoors! More volunteer information is also available on AMC’s webpage.

We are also looking for the right people to chair the following committees: E-Communications, Conservation, Trails, Young Members (typically 2 co-chairs), Membership, and Meetings & Education (Bangor or Brunswick) as well as an At Large position and an Assistant Newsletter editor. FMI, please contact Paul Hahn
Trip Leaders: Volunteers lead a wide variety of trips and activities– paddling, hiking, conservation, education, young members, major excursions, and many more! Annual training is offered to trip leaders and there is a significant discount to obtain the 16-hour Wilderness First Aid certification. Check out our current listings! For more information, please contact the Chair.
Trail Leaders: We are searching for people to join the Trails Committee team and looking for folks to assist leading trail work trips. These people will be responsible for leading a small group of volunteers out to do general trail work during the weekend a few times a year. This work will keep our trails safe and enjoyable for all. Everyone has fun and it’s for a good cause! To join the team click here. Or for more information please send an email to Phil Coyne click here.
Public events: Volunteer to help staff a booth at one of our many events during the year. These include LL Bean Expos, Common Ground Country Fair, Film Festivals, and more. This is the face of the chapter and is a great opportunity to interact with the general public. Most folks are surprised you do NOT have to be an AMC member to attend any of our activities!

Newsletter: Contribute to your Chapter newsletter “Wilderness Matters.” With four issues per year we are always looking for recounts of trips, trail and gear information, nature columns, or poetry – your choice. FMI contact
