WSC, Capitol Land Trust, Restoration Coordinator
The mission of Capitol Land Trust is to further collaborative and strategic conservation of southwest Washington's essential natural areas and working lands. This includes both protecting additional lands for conservation and restoring the lands under our management to improve ecological function. The Restoration Coordinator will mobilize volunteers (to restore important riparian, wetland, and marine shoreline habitat to support threatened species, reduce risks to local economies dependent on these resources, and improve water quality) by implementing a series of volunteer restoration service days on properties managed by Capitol Land Trust in the Black River watershed and along the Puget Sound shoreline in Mason and Thurston counties. In the Black River watershed, efforts will focus on removing invasive plants and replanting native species. In Mason County, efforts will focus on two Oakland Bay properties: a large restoration project to remove a tidal dike and improve salt marsh habitat on our Bayshore Preserve; and expanding healthy riparian buffers at Twin Rivers Ranch Preserve. The AmeriCorps member may also organize restoration events to remove invasive plants, plant native plants, and maintain existing native-plant plantings at other Capitol Land Trust properties. Additionally, public access to two of our preserves will be improved by coordinating with staff and Board members to create and install interpretive signage at Oakland Bay Historical Park. The member will recruit volunteers to prepare the site for these improvements and will use this experience to plan an interpretive trail for our Bayshore Preserve that educates visitors about the natural land and cultural history of the land. This position is contingent on funding. In addition to applying online, applicants must send cover letter and resume to

The member will help develop interpretive signage for educating the public about the many ecological and cultural values at the Oakland Bay Historical Park and mobilize volunteers to prepare the site and install signage, which may include some light trail maintenance. The member will also transfer gained knowledge to staff to further the development of the public access plan for the Bayshore Preserve.
