LSCA Hiring Greeters For 2024 Season

7 May 2024 12:25 PM | Jerremy Jones (Administrator)

Hello LSC. 

The LSCA is currently seeking dedicated and reliable folks to work as Greeters on Lake St. Catherine as part of the Vermont Public Access Greeter Program.

About the LSCA's Greeter Program:

Our Greeter Program is very important to the health of Lake St. Catherine. Our Greeters have been trained to identify aquatic invasive species (AIS) - like spiny waterflea, asian clams, water chestnut, starry stonewort and zebra mussels (and many others) - to stop them from entering LSC at the boat launch in Wells and the State Park in Poultney. They also educate boaters about the importance of looking for these invasives on their boat or trailer so they are not spread to LSC or another lake. Each year, they do a fantastic job checking vessels and educating the lake community on the dangers of invasive species for Lake St. Catherine. They are on duty from Memorial Day through Labor Day - working on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They also cover holidays and fishing tournaments.

Greeters earn $20 per hour.

If you are interested in being a paid Greeter as part of this program, please reach out to us at info@lakestcatherine.org.
