The Great Lakes Conservation Corps (GLCC) is hiring at least 24 seasonal employees for the 2020 summer field season. GLCC is a program that is administered by the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), which is located in Marquette, MI. GLCC crews will be working on projects that are primarily located in the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan, with some projects extending regionally.
