We are currently seeking someone to join our restoration crew.
Responsibilities include: invasive plant control, assisting with native landscaping projects, prescribed burning, and weed mapping.
This is very physically demanding fieldwork and frequently involves prescribed burning, chainsawing, applying herbicides, hauling brush, heavy lifting, and long days. The work takes place in upland and wetland settings, often around poison ivy, poison sumac, biting/stinging insects, and in all weather conditions. While being very demanding, the work is also very rewarding.
Experience working with and repairing power tools, native plant and weed identification skills, driving ATVs, and backing trailers are desirable. The ability to obtain a State of Michigan Herbicide Applicator License is necessary. Other useful skills: experience with handheld GPS units, navigating on foot in natural areas, interpretation of maps and orienting oneself in the landscape, teamwork skills, and ability to work independently.
This position typically consists of four 10-hour workdays, weekly through November, after which reduced hours may be available. While some work occurs in the Ann Arbor area, there are periods of travel throughout the state. Vehicle, lodging, and some meals will be provided.
The pay rate is dependent on experience ($14-$18/hr). The position will be open until filled.
Benefits include monthly healthcare and cellular stipends, PTO, and sick time.
