Crow Wing County Seeks Seasonal Watercraft Inspectors

Web posted February 21, 2023
Help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species and share our vision of being Minnesota’s favorite place. Crow Wing County encourages those who enjoy working outdoors and educating others on the importance of protecting our natural resources, to apply for a seasonal watercraft inspector position. Watercraft inspectors conduct inspections of entering and exiting watercraft at public water accesses and educate watercraft users about aquatic invasive species (AIS).

The starting wage is $17 per hour with hours ranging from 18 to 40 hours per week. The County is looking to fill positions to work from Fishing Opener in May until Labor Day weekend in September. Work is primarily Friday through Sunday with the possibility for some weekday shifts. Those interested in applying to be a seasonal watercraft inspector may view the full job description and apply online at www.crowwing.us/careers or contact our Human Resources Department at (218) 822-7030.

The 2023 AIS Prevention Plan includes funding for watercraft inspections at 43 landings throughout Crow Wing County. Watercraft inspections were identified by lake associations and stakeholders as a top priority for AIS prevention. For more information on the County’s AIS plan, visit www.crowwing.us/ais.

The Land Services Department is committed to providing excellent customer service while helping our residents make wise decisions that protect Crow Wing County’s extraordinary natural resources. Citizens are encouraged to contact the Land Services Department at (218) 824-1010 or landservices@crowwing.us to discuss AIS or other land use related activities.
