Yamhill County Public Works Department
2060 Lafayette Avenue, McMinnville, Oregon 97128
Justin Cooley, Invasive Species Program Coordinator, Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District Susan Aldrich-Markham, Professor Emeritus, Oregon State University
Yamhill County Public Works Department (YCPW) initiated the Roadside Vegetation Inventory to collect geospatial data on significant features within County rights-of-way. These features include native plants, invasive plants, and erosion. The information is used by YCPW in making roadside vegetation management decisions. Invasive species information is used by the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District to develop and implement an integrated noxious weed control program targeting high priority species. The 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 Trimble hardware and maintained in a file geodatabase. The Roadside Vegetation Inventory database will continue to be revised as the inventory progresses to improve data collection efficiency, quality and post collection management. In June 2018, the project expanded to involve a newly-created Invasive Species Program Coordinator position at the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), which is funded partly through a cooperative agreement with YCPW and partly through a grant from the Oregon State Weed Board. The Invasive Species Program Coordinator supports the Roadside Vegetation Inventory and collaborates with YCPW to direct and supervise 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, firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected candidates will be interviewed in person on a mutually agreed-on date.
