Do you have a passion for the outdoors? Do you enjoy sharing your enthusiasm with others? The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is looking for an innovative, strategic thinker to coordinate our efforts to recruit, retain and reactivate anglers, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. R3, as it is called, aims to increase participation in fishing, hunting, shellfish and other outdoor activities. As the R3 Coordinator, you will work with a talented team of professionals in our Information and Education Division to develop, implement and evaluate strategies to increase diversity and overall participation in fishing and hunting. Working with partner organizations and agencies, you’ll help organize and conduct events and workshops to increase the awareness of the fun and the value of fish and wildlife related recreation. If you have a strong interest in the outdoors and are looking for a fast-paced and interesting challenge, apply today! Initial interviews are anticipated to be held via phone, video or virtual interview due to the current situation related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
If you enjoy the outdoors, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is the place for you. It is less than an hour from glaciated mountain peaks to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the massive Columbia River Gorge to the north. You can fish 365 days a year, and there is hunting for big game, waterfowl and game birds. The Oregon coast attracts thousands of people who clam, crab and fish in the ocean for halibut, salmon and tuna. The outdoor opportunities are endless when it comes to fish and wildlife in Oregon! If culture is what you seek, the Willamette Valley is the most populated area in Oregon and contains its three largest cities: Salem, Portland and Eugene, which are home to many museums and theaters. The Valley is also known for its vineyards, breweries and fantastic casual dining experiences.
