Description
Biological Field Technician Job Summary: Plumas Audubon is seeking an experienced field biologist to conduct protocol level surveys for Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog and Western Pond Turtle. This position is part time throughout the survey period and requires a flexible schedule. The biologist will work closely with the Project Manager to ensure that surveys are conducted in accordance to recommended protocols and that data is recorded and documented accurately. The biological field technician may work independently or with other crew members. Field work for this position will be primarily on Plumas National Forest lands in California's Sierra Nevada Range. With elevations ranging from 3,000 ft. to 7,000 ft., the environment in these mountains varies anywhere between deep valleys of old growth forest and steep densely forested terrain. The work generally requires a great amount of physical exertion because it involves long hours hiking on closed roads and trails. Off-trail hikes on steep, rocky terrain will be frequent. The appointee must be willing and able to carry backpacks and research equipment weighing up to 45 pounds, hike off-trails, and work in inclement weather conditions that may include wind, rain, and snow. Fieldwork will require a flexible schedule, typically 10 hours per shift during the summer months (June – August). Dates of employment will vary depending on ecological factors and survey priority. This is a part-time seasonal position. KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: ● Conduct protocol-level surveys for the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog throughout the Moonlight Fire Footprint. ● Conduct protocol-level surveys for Western Pond Turtles near Oroville, CA. ● Ability to use GPS, maps, compass and navigate off trail is required. ● Record accurate data and GPS tracks. ● Upload GIS data to Plumas Audubon Society network server, with attention to data management throughout the season. ● Coordinate with Project Manager to create survey plans. ● Ability to operate a manual transmission preferred.
