MCC’s Wildland Restoration Program puts members on the frontlines of invasive species management and ecological restoration in an early detection rapid response model for wildland restoration. Crew members are trained in plant identification, inventory and monitoring techniques using GPS, invasive species management that may include chemical, biological and mechanical treatments, and resource conservation management practices. Wildland Restoration crews may also participate in innovative wetlands and habitat restoration projects such as beaver pond mimicry. Projects are often rigorous requiring carrying a heavy backpack sprayer and working in hot weather across rugged terrain while wearing protective gear. But the exposure to resource professionals working on premier public lands in the West, and real-world job experience in wildland restoration is unparalleled.
Please pass this opportunity to anyone you know who might be interested.
