Justin Spencer, Park Resource Manager
Justin has lived in Central Maine most of his life, swimming, fishing, boating, and ice fishing at Lake George. He served the U.S. Army for 5 years, fulfilling the role of Combat Engineer during active duty in Afghanistan, and as such, is a perfect fit for ensuring the safety and organization of the “outdoor office” at Lake George. He leads our summer internship program, and supervises an extensive list of park improvement projects. Justin earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Unity College in the field of Conservation Law Enforcement.
Trudy Champney, TD 4 Workforce Volunteer – Office Assistant
Trudy handles general office duties including correspondence, answering phones, scheduling along with the bookkeeping duties that support the Park’s accounting.
Chelsea Bothen, Summer Camp & Program Leader
Chelsea is from Mount Desert, Maine, home to Acadia National Park, where she grew up hiking, biking, and swimming on the Maine coast. After serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay, Chelsea worked for five seasons as a National Park ranger in Acadia where she further developed her teaching skills and style, as well as gained knowledge of native plants and natural resources. Chelsea is excited to incorporate this knowledge into the outdoor recreation programs she’ll be leading. When Chelsea isn’t exploring the local Skowhegan trails you can find her skiing at Sugarloaf, kayaking the Maine Island Trails or hiking somewhere in Maine’s western mountains.
Lake George Regional Park hires on seasonal staff from May into September. If you are interested in a possible position email firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and cover letter directed to Park Resource Manager, Justin Spencer.
Many Volunteers share their expertise and help LGRP complete projects year round. LGRP also relies on volunteers programs like ASPIRE and ABLE along with the A4TD workforce program to help provide staff year round. These programs offer a great way to build job skills and improve the park at the same time.
