Hello Everyone,

Looking for a fun summer job? The Franklin Watershed Committee is looking for a Public Access Boat Greeter for the summer 2023 season! Boat Greeters serve the extremely important job of preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species to and from Lake Carmi. As many of you know, Lake Carmi has been plagued with Eurasian Watermilfoil since the 1980s and it has taken over much of our native seaweed species. It is imperative that we do everything we can to prevent new aquatic invasive species from entering the lake, and to keep our aquatic species from leaving the lake.

We are looking for someone to be stationed at either the North Shore boat launch or the Lake Carmi State Park boat launch for approximately 20 hours per week for 15 weeks of the summer at $18 per hour. This job does require some early morning start times to coincide with fishers entering the water. Greeters will be required to attend a Public Access Greeter Training session through the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. You can find the full job description and training schedule on the Vermont DEC website here:

Not only is this an important job at Lake Carmi and many lakes around Vermont, it is also fun and a great way to earn some extra money next summer, especially for students and retirees! If you are interested in becoming a Public Access Greeter please contact Julia Crocker at Thank you! 


Open positions



Please contact the town office (285-2101) or any Selectboard member with interest or questions.
