20-21 Clark CD, Farm and Forestry Outreach Coordinator
 
 
 
Since 1942, Clark Conservation District (Clark CD) has worked with individuals and communities to conserve and manage water quality, soils, and natural habitats for the benefit of the public. Clark CD provides technical, financial, and educational resources to meet the needs of the local landowner for the conservation of our resources. We are non-regulatory and 100% grant-funded. Urbanizing Clark County has been particularly susceptible to losing farmland under social and economic pressures from housing, industry, and development. As communities grow, the geographical divisions between agriculture and urban areas are no longer clear and many farms are surrounded by residential and commercial growth. Clark County is a historically agricultural area that is quickly becoming urbanized. Property values have skyrocketed, and smaller farms have become more prevalent than larger operations. The Member will serve Clark County by connecting farmers with resources to improve conservation practices on their land. Clark, Cowlitz, and Wahkiakum Counties have extensive forestland. Due to the rural nature of portions of these counties, there are more limited outreach opportunities. The Member will develop and implement an outreach strategy to improve the service of these rural communities by our Stewardship Forester. The Member will serve agricultural landowners in Clark County and forest landowners in the three counties. The Member will become integrated into the communities they serve and will provide education to farm and forest landowners. They will expand program offerings to community members and will leverage relationships with partner organizations and develop relationships with new organizations. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. We anticipate holding interviews at the beginning of July. In addition to applying online, applicants must send a cover letter and resume to Ashley Smithers at asmithers@clarkcd.org.
