Invasive Species Internship
Project Location: 8600 NE 117th Avenue, Vancouver, Washington 98668
Start date: Position available starting in June. Full-time start date flexible.
The watershed enhancement program at Clark Public Utilities began in 1992 and has grown to become a regionally recognized environmental restoration effort. Since the program’s inception, volunteers from a variety of backgrounds have planted over 700,000 native trees to bring salmon back to Salmon Creek. Unfortunately a variety of non-native invasive plant species threaten these important riparian ecosystems.
The Invasive Species Intern will support the Utilities’ Eradication Nation program. This program is focused on controlling invasive Japanese knotweed and other invasive plant species in the Salmon Creek watershed. This internship will provide the opportunity to develop a number of natural resource management skills that focus on invasive species control.
