Join In Protecting Candlewood This Summer as a CLA Lake Steward!

May 18, 2021 / 5 mins read

The Candlewood Lake Authority has begun the hiring process for our Lake Stewards, positions funded through the new DEEP Invasive Species stamp grant! If you would like to join us this summer in rewarding work that helps protect Candlewood Lake, please don't hesitate to apply for this new program. Lake Stewards will be posted at one of the public boat launches around Candlewood Lake to offer boat inspections and Invasive Species education to boaters visiting the lake. They will be working on peak boating days (including weekends and holidays) and will receive an hourly rate of $14 per hour.

We are also hiring supervisors who oversee and actively manage the program while stewards are stationed at the launches at a rate of $16 per hour, so be sure to include if you are interested in that position!
