Full-Time – Temporary Position
This will be a short-term position lasting approximately three (3) weeks beginning in September 2014. One laborer will be hired to join our Reed Canarygrass team to help with the fieldwork associated with this invasive grass project. The crew’s work is part of a several year project aimed at containing and eradicating an aggressive invasive grass that potentially threatens salmon runs in the Kenai River watershed. Tasks include: scouting for and taking data on observed infestations along creeks and lakes in bear country; digging and removing large patches of grass in creeks and other challenging locations; and conducting other manual labor in support of project objectives.
