Want to Work with AIS? AIS Technician Wanted for Green Lake
Golden Sands Resource Conservation & Development Council, Inc. (RC&D) is seeking three full-time (32hrs/week) aquatic invasive species (AIS) technicians for the summer of 2013. Two positions will rotate to lakes throughout Marquette and Green Lake Counties, one position will exclusively serve Green Lake. Primary duties will include performing watercraft inspections at boat landings, assisting Golden Sands AIS staff with AIS mapping and lake surveys, and assisting with removal of purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria), Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum), and early Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) populations. Technicians will report to the Marquette County Land Conservation or Green Lake Association offices before beginning the day’s activities.
What is our interest in this position?
Last year, we worked with the Green Lake County Land Conservation Department to begin a grant funded Aquatic invasive Species Coordinator (AISC) position for Green Lake County. This local initiative grew into a multi-county initiative wherein the Golden Sands Resource Conservation and Development Council took the lead in applying for the grant and will facilitate the program for both Marquette and Green Lake Counties. We will offer staff support, organizational resources, and office space for the AIS staff working on Green Lake.
