GMCG is proud to be partnering with the Lakes Region Conservation Corps as an AmeriCorps host site, currently hosting two full term members and two half term members.

AmeriCorps is a voluntary civil society program supported by the U.S. federal government, foundations, corporations, and other donors engaging adults in public service work with a goal of “helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.” Members commit to full-time or part-time positions offered by a network of nonprofit community organizations and public agencies, to fulfill assignments in the fields of education, public safety, health care, and environmental protection. The program is often seen as a domestic Peace Corps. It employs more than 75,000 Americans in intensive service each year. AmeriCorps is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). It was created under President Bill Clinton by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993.

I grow up in Londonderry, New Hampshire and spent my childhood running barefoot through the woods and catching frogs. This spring I graduated from Ithaca College where I majored in writing and minored in environmental studies. I’m passionate about science communication and enjoy educating people about the natural world.

Brittney studied Biology with a concentration in Ecology and Conservation at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. She has been pursuing a career in ecology and conservation working in partnership with federal agencies such as U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, and the National Park Service. A large part of Brittney’s career has been working on conservation efforts and protective measures for the federally listed Mojave Desert tortoise in the U.S. southwest. Brittney is excited to gain experience and learn about freshwater ecology and New Hampshire’s ecosystems.

Bethany Mestelle
Bethany MestelleEducation & Outreach Assistant
Hi! My name is Bethany, and I grew up in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin, where I fell in love with the outdoors and learning as much as I possibly could about the world around me. That desire for discovery led me to the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where I studied Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management and minored in Soil Science and Music. In college, I was a member of the marching band, where I spent two years leading the ensemble as the Block Captain, and was an educator at the Natural History Museum. Through these opportunities, I developed a passion for teaching. I am excited to apply my knowledge and continue learning with Green Mountain Conservation Group and build connections with the community through science. In my free time, I can often be found outdoors hiking or biking, reading a good book, or making music with any instrument I can get my hands on!
Caitlin Noseworthy
Caitlin NoseworthyWater Quality Resources Assistant
Hi! My name is Caitlin Noseworthy and I’m from Mendota Heights, Minnesota. My family wasn’t exactly an “outdoors” family, but I always appreciated my science classes, especially earth science.  I earned my BS in Geology from St. Norbert College where I grew an immense appreciation for the outdoors through all the field trips. I recently finished my MS in Hydrogeology in August from Illinois State University where I found myself enjoying the surface water and water quality aspects of my classes. I’m excited to be working with Green Mountain Conservation Group because I will get to participate in hands-on projects relating to water quality while getting to share my passions with others. I enjoy hiking, golfing (most of the time), reading, puzzles (unless there are pieces missing), ice skating, and I’m always up for learning new things! I can’t wait to spend the next ten months out in New Hampshire!
