The position works in southwestern North Carolina across both our Clean Waters and Resilient Forests program areas. It includes a combination of volunteer recruitment and coordination, water quality monitoring, on-the-ground stewardship of public and conserved lands, and public outreach. It involves a lot of time outdoors in all seasons and regular travel across several counties. Primary responsibilities are to (1) coordinate and expand the region’s microplastics sampling program; (2) work with partners to engage volunteers in other aspects of volunteer monitoring of water quality, aquatic communities and habitat; and (3) help control nonnative invasive plants and restore native plant communities in parks, along greenways, and on other public lands.
