CNLM, Prairie Restoration Technician
Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled. The Center for Natural Lands Management’s (CNLM) stewardship activities are currently divided between California and Washington. In the State of Washington, CNLM focuses on conservation of one of the rarest ecosystems in United States, the prairie and oak woodlands of the south Puget Sound region. At least 92 percent of the prairie habitat in south Puget Sound region has been converted to other land uses or destroyed. CNLM aims to protect and restore prairie and oak habitats, and support the recovery of rare species. Our Washington staff serves our conservation objectives by acquiring, managing and restoring conservation lands, conducting applied restoration research projects, growing native plants and seed, and conducting outreach to partners and the public. CNLM seeks eight full-time AmeriCorps members to fill prairie restoration service opportunities with the South Sound Prairies Program in the Olympia office. These eight positions include a Prairie Science Technician, a Prairie Monitor Technician, a Prairie Restoration Technician, a Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, an Avian Science Technitian, a Butterfly/Pollinator Technician, and two Native Plant Production Technicians. These positions are offered through and contingent on funding from the Washington Service Corps.

Member Duties : The Prairie Restoration Technician will assist with seasonal on the ground restoration actions across hundreds of acres at several public and private South Sound prairie sites and with plant propagation at the native plant nurseries. Restoration tasks will include control of invasive species, prescribed fire application, native planting and seeding, and monitoring of key animal and plant species. The nursery activities will include native seed processing, seed bed maintenance, and plug sowing. The Restoration Technician will serve independently, or as part of a team with other CNLM staff, dedicated long and short-term volunteers, and other AmeriCorps members. Depending on the time of year, 4 to 5 days per week will be spent in the field or nursery environment completing land stewardship tasks across the South Sound prairies with preparation and follow up reports completed at the Olympia office. During these times, some long field days can be expected.
