22-23 KCD Environmental Conservation Specialist
Kitsap Conservation District (KCD) has worked with individuals and communities to conserve natural resources and manage water quality, soils, and natural habitats for the benefit of the public for over 70 years. KCD provides technical, financial, and educational resources to meet the needs of the local landowner for the conservation of natural resources. Kitsap county residents have shown an interest in preserving the health of watershed they live in. The Backyard Habitat (BYH) Program provides the funding and assistance to make the project possible. Erosion control, stream health, noxious weeds, flooding and permitting are common concerns for salmon habitat and success is realized when fish are seen using the new habitat created. Salmon play an integral part of tribal religion, culture, and physical sustenance - salmon are sacred to the tribes of the Pacific Northwest and habitat restoration supports indigenous foodways. The Member will recruit volunteers to remove refuse, plant stream sides and remove noxious weeds and fish barriers. The Member will become integrated into the communities they serve and will provide environmental education to farm, forest, and residential landowners. They will support program offerings to community members and build relationships with partner organizations and engage underserved groups with environmental programming. Position is contingent upon funding.
