Volunteer Opportunities

Weed Watchers

Milfoil threatens recreation and property values, making Weed Watching one of our most important volunteer activities. Volunteer Weed Watchers have helped prevent the spread of new infestations simply by knowing what to look for while out on the lake swimming, fishing, or boating. We will train you to monitor your shorefront or a larger portion of the lake. It’s easy and it’s a simple but important way to help. Contact us at info@ossipeelake.org.

Writers & Photographers

The lake has a rich history, and the stories that will comprise history in the future take place on the lake every day. Can you write? Can you take great photos? Are you interested in research and oral history? Do you like conducting interviews?

We are always looking for volunteers to work on our information services. Tell us about yourself and your interests at info@ossipeelake.org.

Lake Hosts

Lake Hosts help prevent invasive milfoil from entering and leaving the lake at the Pine River and Pequawket Trail public boat ramps and other locations. Paid and volunteer Lake Hosts are needed each summer to work for the Lake Host program, coordinated by Jim McElroy in Freedom. Contact him at jmcelroy@inemi.org. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
