Subject: 2019 Land Stewardship Technician Positions - Oakland Township Parks

Hi All,

I hope winter is treating you well – it finally arrived the last few weeks! We’ll need to stop by soon to finish/pick up our taxidermy work.

Just wanted to let you know that we are accepting applications for our 2019 seasonal Land Stewardship Technician positions until February 15 (up to 3 positions available). After working for Oakland Township Parks our stewardship technicians have gone on to other natural resources and environmental positions, many of them full-time.

This position is a great way to get some hands-on experience with natural areas management. Technicians will get experience with a variety of techniques for monitoring, invasive species treatment, installing native plantings, data management, and species ID. The position will be up to 20 weeks this year. If you have anyone that you think would be a good fit, please share the attached job advertisement and description. People can also check out the our stewardship website to learn more about the stewardship work we do in the parks (<>).
