CNLM, Prairie Restoration Technician
Along the southern edge of Puget Sound lies a landscape unusual in the Pacific Northwest. Amidst steep mountains and massive closed canopy forests are open rolling grasslands interwoven with oak savannas, pine woodlands, and rich wetlands. The intertwining of these habitats forms a mosaic that supports a rich array of native birds, mammals, flowers and butterflies-some of which are found nowhere else on Earth. These prairies are now one of the rarest habitats in the U.S; only 1-3% of the original native prairie remains. The Center for Natural Lands Management (CNLM) works with a wide range of federal, state, local and non-profit partners to conserve and restore habitat structure and functioning to these prairies and their associated rare species. To help with this task, CNLM seeks fulltime AmeriCorps members to fill prairie restoration service opportunities with the South Sound Prairies Program in the Olympia office. These positions are contingent on funding.
