NY-NJ Trail Conference Invasive Strike Force Leader
 
 
 
The TCCC Invasives Strike Force (ISF) crew mitigates ecological damage by employing the most effective techniques to stop invasive plants in southern NY. Crew members spend most of their time managing invasive plants in the field and will also gain office experience managing data. If you want to lead a team of peers in environmental restoration projects, network with regional leaders in conservation, and build outdoor leadership and management skills, becoming a leader on the Invasives Strike Force crew might be right for you! The TCCC AmeriCorps crews are trained by industry experts in sustainable trail building, invasive species management, public outreach, volunteer engagement, and outdoor leadership. TCCC members learn and serve outside of the greater NY metropolitan area in one of the nation’s finest systems of public parks. The ISF crew implements the regional strategy of the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management by surveying areas for new invaders to the region and responding quickly to priority species using best management practices. Members work with a wide range of park partners at multiple sites throughout southern NY and will be supported by the Terrestrial Invasive Species Project Manager and the Director of Land Stewardship. We are seeking a crew leader who shares our passion for conservation and the outdoors to join us in controlling non-native invasive plant species. Plant identification and management training will be provided, however it is expected that the crew leader will have some experience already. ISF crew members will perform both manual and chemical treatment of invasive plants and will become NY Pesticide Apprentices with opportunity to train and take exams for licensing. This is primarily an outdoor position and includes periods of multi-day camping at work sites. Weekend work is required with Tuesdays and Wednesdays off.
