    Vegetation Management Watershed Aide position

    Marin Water protects over 20,000 acres of watershed lands, primarily on Mt. Tamalpais, a biodiversity hotspot. We will be hiring 3 temporary employees to assist with vegetation management this year. These are 6 month positions with no benefits and the duty station is near Fairfax, CA. Pay is between $22 and $25.39 per hour, depending on experience and education.

    This is a great opportunity for folks who enjoy being outdoors in a diversity of habitats, have a good work ethic, and are considering pursuing a career in conservation/ natural resources management.

    We will begin reviewing applications Feb 7. Two positions will begin on March 14th. A third position will begin mid-May.

    The assignment is about 75% field work. This is primarily navigating safely to known invasive species locations, correctly identifying the relevant plant, using a handheld electronic device to update the mapping and assessment, and manually removing the invasive. Marin Water does not use herbicide. Follow up office work includes ensuring all digital records are accurate and complete. Strong candidates will have a proven track record of working safely outdoors, have some experience with plant ID and invasives removal, are capable of clear communication of questions and observations, have a strong work ethic, and are capable of courteous communication with the recreating public. Coursework or a degree in ecology or related fields is desirable, and candidates with an interest in pursuing a career in natural resources management are encouraged to apply. Watershed Aides may direct interns or volunteers and may provide oversight to contractors. Watershed Aides may also assist with other projects such as: early detection searches for invasives of concern, on-going restoration projects, vegetation surveys, research data collection and entry, and rare plant mapping. One of the positions may be filled at a crew leader level.
