The Presidio Trust is seeking an Ecological Restoration Fellow to serve as an important member of our Natural Resources team. The Presidio is a new kind of national park. It is home to the spectacular vistas, nature and programs that visitors would expect as well as a community of residents and organizations who bring renewed vitality and purpose to this former military post. The Presidio Trust is an innovative federal agency created to save the Presidio and share it with the public. The Trust’s Natural Resources department manages 145 acres of native plant communities in the park, including dune, coastal prairie, Oak woodland, and riparian habitats.
Our ideal candidate is an individual who wants to learn basic restoration field practices and techniques that include identifying plants and wildlife common to the Presidio. Working closely with and being mentored by a Biological Science Technician, this Fellowship includes participating in and leading field restoration activities, and assisting in all aspects of managing a volunteer program. If you want to support the management and stewardship of the Presidio’s natural resources and restoration sites, this Fellowship is for you.
The Presidio Trust will provide training and mentorship on all aspects of the position. The Fellow will join a dedicated and passionate Natural Resources team, and get hands-on community outreach and volunteer coordination skills. In addition, Fellows will connect to a larger network of land stewardship practitioners.
