Forest Stewardship Program Coordinator (9/18/2020)

Join the Puget Sound Conservation Districts and make a difference. Seven Puget Sound conservation districts (PSCDs) are collaborating to build and deliver a new Regional Forest Stewardship Program (Program) that seeks to promote and conserve resilient forests for multiple benefits through forest stewardship services. Forest stewardship services will be delivered by a corps of three Forest Stewardship Program Coordinators working at three separate duty locations each serving an area comprised of multiple conservation districts.

The goal of the Program is to improve forest health and reduce the risk of conversion by empowering communities and forest landowners to become knowledgeable and successful stewards of forest resources. Stewardship priorities include forest and watershed health and resilience, water quality and riparian and fish and wildlife habitat, contiguous areas under active management and in proximity to surface waters and publicly held open spaces and conservation sites, and profitable working forest lands.

This is a 2-year program with potential for extension depending on funding. Individuals occupying the forester positions will help build and make the case to secure long-term program funding.

This position announcement is open until positions are filled, but priority will be given to applicants submitting materials by October 4, 2020, 11:59 PM.
