Clean, healthy streams and estuaries sustain salmon, shellfish, and our way of life. An engaged local community is needed to help protect and restore these ecosystems. This position will help revitalize the Grays Harbor Stream Team, a project which was started in 2009 to increase community involvement in environmental stewardship by conducting volunteer stream restoration projects in the lower Chehalis watershed and Grays Harbor area.
The Stream Team Coordinator will recruit volunteers, deliver environmental education and lead environmental restoration projects. The Coordinator will develop restoration projects in collaboration with natural resource-focused organizations working in the Gray Harbor area, including: Chehalis River Basin Land Trust, Chehalis Basin Partnership, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, Grays Harbor Audubon Society, and the Grays Harbor Conservation District. The Coordinator will guide volunteers through work parties to plant trees and shrubs along streams, remove invasive species and trash around streams and on conserved land, coordinate environmental education opportunities, and help implement educational events including the Chehalis Watershed booths at various community events. The Coordinator will be housed at the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport but will work throughout the lower Chehalis River watershed and Grays Harbor area. This position is designed to both serve an important need in the community, and provide learning and work experience for a student or recent graduate.
