22-23 NOAA OCNMS, Enviro. Education & Stewardship Specialist
Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary is one of our nation's most treasured marine areas, encompassing more than 3000 square miles of Washington State coastal waters. The mission is to protect Olympic Coast's natural and cultural resources through responsible stewardship, to conduct and apply research to preserve the area's ecological integrity and maritime heritage, and to promote understanding through public outreach and education. OCNMS education team requires the service of a Washington Service Corps AmeriCorps Member with development and implementation of education and outreach programs consistent with Ocean Literacy Action Plan in the 2011 Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Final Management Plan. This position will be monitored and managed through regular verbal and email contact with OCNMS Education and Outreach Specialist. The nature of the contract requires close coordination with NOAA partners, including Washington CoastSavers. Due to the necessity of utilizing specific files and conducting field trips, much of the work involved will take place in the offices of OCNMS. The Sanctuary will provide a workstation at the OCNMS office in Port Angeles, WA, including access to a computer, telephone, copier and other IT equipment. For off-site outreach activities and meetings the AmeriCorps Member will have access to a government vehicle.
