20-21 Mountains to Sound Greenway Restoration Associate
 
 
 
As a member of the Greenway Trust Stewardship Program, you’ll have the opportunity to serve with a highly successful team in an energetic, productive, and fast-paced environment. Through extensive hands-on involvement in a wide variety of projects and agency partnerships, you will learn about ecological issues on public natural lands and build skills in public land management. To support many of our environmental stewardship efforts, the Greenway Trust recruits and engages more than 4,000 community volunteers each year. These volunteers provide support for invasive weed removal, native tree and shrub planting efforts, and trail maintenance. Our interactions with community volunteers provide a unique opportunity to discuss the Greenway, the landscape, the challenges faced in stewarding and caring for public land and gives volunteers a chance to “give back” to the lands where they live, work and play. Restoration Associates will be responsible for assisting with community engagement efforts (recruiting and managing volunteers and tracking volunteer information), and will also assist Greenway Trust staff with other core projects, including invasive plant removal, native plant installation and operations at our Native Plant Nursery. This position will also lead efforts in with restoration site maintenance and vegetation monitoring. Interviews are expected to take place in May and June of 2020.
