2013 RCC on Burnt Island, ME.
2013 RCC on Burnt Island

We go by different names: the Roving Conservation Crew, Roving Contract Crew, Contract Crew, or very often The RCC.  Over the past four trail seasons, the RCC has been working with local municipalities, land trusts, government organizations, and private land owners to extend the AMC’s long history of excellent professional trail work beyond the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Some of the work this crew has completed over the past few years has included building bridges, boardwalks, and ADA accessible trails for the Town of Stratham, NH, improving the trail network on Burnt Island off the coast of Maine, completing multiple trail projects for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, constructing accessible trail for the Greater Lovell Land Trust in Maine, and the list goes on and on…

So far this season, the crew has already completed trail projects for the Massachusetts DCR on the back side of Mt. Wachusett, the Loon Echo Land Trust in Bridgeton, ME, and two projects for The Trustees of Reservations in Dedham, MA. Currently, the RCC is doing some backcountry work on the Avalon Trail out of Crawford Notch.  This crew traditionally works in the front country, so this week has been a pleasant change of pace (and a nice escape from the suburbs!)
