Volunteer/Youth Stewardship Coordinator – Invasives Removal

This position would be supervised by Point Reyes National Seashore Association, although they would work with Point Reyes National Seashore’s Vegetation/Wetland Ecologist.  The Volunteer/Stewardship Invasives Removal Coordinator would 1) educate members of the public about the biology and impacts of non-native (and even native) invasive species to the health of native vegetation communities and the threatened and endangered species that rely on them, 2) increase outreach efforts to youth (and adults), 3) organize a series of volunteer workdays for adults and youth aimed at eradicating some of the Seashore’s biggest weed threats and restoring some of the Seashore’s most important vegetation communities such as coastal dunes. Youth outreach efforts would build upon relationships with local and non-local schools already developed by PRNSA’s “Science at the Seashore” and “Every Kid in the Park” programs. A key stewardship focus for the coordinator would involve developing a revegetation plan for foredune areas at the Abbotts Lagoon Coastal Dune Restoration Project and conducting outplanting with volunteer and possibly contractor efforts.  The coordinator will provide field guidance of park volunteers and interns.
