      The National Park Service (NPS), along with the Environmental Stewards (ES) program, and the Historic Preservation Training Center (HPTC) works with other NPS units and other Federal Agencies to provide day-labor preservation services working on historic carpentry features associated with buildings that have historic significance to the projects site and nation.  The Steward would assist in the maintenance, stabilization, restoration, repair or reconstruction of various historic structures and cultural assets that range widely in historic period, architectural style, construction materials, and existing conditions.  These include wood shingles, roofs, log structures, mortise and tenon framing, historic window sash and trim, and other traditional carpentry related components and materials.  The Steward could be assigned to a project location anywhere in the United States for a period not to exceed 30 days before being returned to Frederick, MD.  The need for an Environmental Steward includes the desire to provide preservation craft training as part of providing the labor needed to complete the numerous preservation projects that are currently in the HPC Carpentry Section project work plan.  The work provided by the Steward will directly relate to the NPS youth initiatives and will provide assistance in saving, maintaining and preserving historic structures.

The Steward(s) would be provided a travel allowance and housing when assigned to project locations outside of the 50 mile radius of Frederick, MD.  At this time the HPTC does not provide housing in Frederick, MD.
