Join our team! The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust is sponsoring four seasonal Restoration Associates through the Washington Service Corps (WSC) AmeriCorps program. Serving with the Greenway Trust offers an opportunity to gain natural resources management experience in a blend of forest and aquatic ecosystems from Seattle to Central Washington. As part of our Stewardship Team, you will serve closely with our partners and volunteers to combat invasive weeds and install native plants throughout the Greenway. Your hard work will result in improved forest and ecological health for Greenway natural areas.

POSITION SUMMARY
As a member of the Greenway Trust Stewardship Program, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a highly successful team in an energetic, productive, and fast-paced environment. Through extensive hands-on involvement in a wide variety of projects and agency partnerships, you will learn about ecological issues on public natural lands, and build skills in public land management.

To support many of our environmental stewardship efforts, the Greenway Trust recruits and engages more than 4,000 community volunteers each year. These volunteers provide support for trail maintenance, invasive weed removal, and native tree and shrub planting efforts. Our interactions with community volunteers provide a unique opportunity to discuss the Greenway, the landscape, the challenges faced in stewarding and caring for public land, and gives volunteers a chance to “give back” to the lands where they live, work and play.

Serving as a Restoration Team and occasionally individually, the Restoration Associates will be responsible for assisting with community engagement efforts (recruiting and managing volunteers, tracking volunteer information, tracking volunteer accomplishments and recognizing achievements, and helping to broaden the reach and depth of the program), and will also assist Greenway Trust staff with other core projects, including invasive plant removal, native plant installation, trail maintenance scouting, operations at our Native Plant Nursery at Lake Sammamish State Park and logistics at our field office.

RESPONSIBILITIES
• Serve as a Restoration Team alongside Greenway Trust, agency, nonprofit, and other staff, other AmeriCorps members, and the public to complete ecological restoration and trail enhancements, including: tree planting, manual and chemical invasive weed control, logging road restoration, erosion control/slope stabilization, routine trail maintenance (clearing, brushing, tread and structure repair), and new trail construction/renovations.
• Assist the Restoration Projects Manager and Restoration Project Coordinator with oversight and management of restoration projects; including collecting monitoring data at past restoration sites, providing education to landowners along three primary knotweed control campaigns; invasive weed survey and control efforts across the landscape; tree planting site preparation and plant layout; and other restoration projects as assigned.
• Lead volunteer land stewardship events within the Greenway on weekdays and Saturdays, which includes developing relationships with and educating volunteers about the Greenway, site history, and other relevant information.
• Maintain the Greenway Trust’s Native Plant Nursery, including monitoring inventory, organizing plant potting events, overseeing irrigation systems, and other tasks.
• Assist with the Greenway Trust’s field base maintenance, which includes hand and power tool repair and maintenance, vehicle inspections, tool inventory management, and other items related to tools used for volunteer projects.
• Strengthen public understanding of the Greenway through education at volunteer and other events and provide a safe and fun environment for volunteers.
• Assist the Greenway Education Program with service learning volunteer event leadership for participating schools.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS

• Ability to apply pesticides to non-native plants, and, upon employment, ability to test for and receive a Washington State Pesticide Applicator’s License (part of Greenway Trust training, and will be provided during the service term).
• Proven oral communication skills and ability to represent the Greenway Trust in a professional manner.
• Provide daily, personal transportation to Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah, WA.
• A valid driver’s license, clean driving record and the ability to drive agency vehicles.
• Must successfully pass a criminal history background check.
