Yamhill County Public Works Department
2060 Lafayette Avenue, McMinnville, Oregon 97128
Susan Aldrich-Markham, Professor Emeritus, Oregon State University
John Phelan, Director, Yamhill County Public Works Department
Michael Crabtree, Senior Conservation Technician, Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District,
Yamhill County Public Works Department (YCPW) recently initiated the GIS Roadside Vegetation Inventory in order to collect georeferenced data on significant features within roadside rights-of-way. These features include Native Plants, Invasive Plants, Erosion, and Optimal Vegetation. The GIS Roadside Vegetation Inventory is part of the implementation of the Yamhill County Roadside Vegetation Management Plan adopted in February 2016.
The data are managed using Esri ArcGIS software. Data are collected using a Trimble Juno 5B GPS handheld computer with ArcPad and transferred into ArcMap on a laptop computer. It is regularly uploaded to the larger Yamhill County ArcGIS database. The GIS Roadside Vegetation Inventory database, particularly the native plants section, is currently in the draft phase. It will need to be revised over the project period in order to more completely capture significant attributes that YCPW can use to make roadside vegetation management decisions. The data collection procedure and the performance of database on the Trimble GPS will need to be optimized.
Beginning in June 2018, the project will expand to involve a newly-created Invasive Species Program Coordinator position at the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), which was funded partly through a cooperative agreement with YCPW and partly through a grant from the Oregon State Weed Board. As the Invasive Species Program develops over the summer, the person in the Coordinator position will gradually take on a greater role in managing the GIS Roadside Vegetation Inventory and in collaborating with YCPW to determine the specific task list for the GIS Interns.
Tasks – Interns will cooperate as partners on most tasks.
Submit a letter explaining why you are interested in the position and outlining your qualifications. Specifically address each of the five qualifications listed. Include a list of appropriate courses taken in GIS and agriculture, botany or natural resources. Submit at least one letter of recommendation.
Email application letters to: Catherine Lindberg, YCPW, email@example.com. Selected candidates will be interviewed in person on a mutually agreed-on date.
