CNLM, Prairie Science 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 Restoration Technician, a Prairie Science Monitor Technician, a Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, a Butterfly/Pollinator Science Technician, an Avian Science 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 Science Technician will support many ongoing experiments, which explore effective restoration techniques for western Washington prairies. In order to develop and maintain high quality prairies, more information on how this ecosystem functions is needed. CNLM collaborates with partners to conduct regional, multisite experiments that determine current ecological conditions and test the efficiency of restoration practices. The member will spend 60 percent of their time assisting staff with experimental research, project and species monitoring, and data management; the remaining time will be spent on restoration practices, including native plant propagation, invasive species control and native planting. This member will assist with scientific studies evaluating effects of prescribed fire, herbicide, grazing, seeding, and mycorrhizal fungi inoculation of native plants. Tasks include reviewing literature, setting up experiments, collecting field data and managing the data.
