Botanist Lead, WUI Fuels Reduction Field Team

In cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service Spring Mountains National Recreation Area (SMNRA), the Great Basin Institute is recruiting a Botanist to work cooperatively as part of a 6-person team to complete botany surveys for rare, threatened, and/or butterfly host plants in support of fuels reduction efforts on the SMNRA.

Located on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, the SMNRA is over 316,000 acres with elevations ranging from 3,700 feet to over 11,900 at the peak of Mt. Charleston. The SMNRA Wilderness Urban Interface (WUI) project will cover close to 1500 acres. Primary duties will consist of belt transects and similar survey methods. Project site elevations will vary from 6,500 to 9,000 feet in elevation.

The botanist will serve as the Lead for the Field Team as well as the main point of contact for GBI and SMNRA staff. The botanist is responsible for the scheduling, day-to-day oversight, and personnel management of five (5) AmeriCorps members. Additionally, the Botanist is responsible for ensuring that field survey and monitoring protocols are adhered to, that data are collected and recorded accurately, and that all pertinent information is reported to the USFS through written reports, maps and datasets. Opportunities to collaborate with other GBI crews supporting project work on the SMNRA may be possible.
