The Great Basin Institute
The Great Basin Institute, in cooperation with the U.S.
Forest Service Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, is recruiting an AmeriCorps Biological Science Technician to participate in rangeland monitoring and invasive non-native plant treatment, monitoring, and management projects for the forest's statewide noxious weed control program.
The focus of this position will be a mixture of rangeland monitoring related to threatened and endangered species and the mechanical and chemical treatment of invasive and noxious weeds.
Most of this work is conducted using UTV’s, backpack sprayers, and large 4WD spray vehicles traveling on remote 4WD roads.
Appropriate personal protective equipment will be supplied by the Forest Service and utilized by Technicians at all times.
A tablet with ArcCollector and Invasive Species Mobile, as well as a Garmin InReach device, will be used to record plant populations.
