California Trout (CalTrout) is a statewide non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization dedicated to protecting California’s wild native trout species and habitats supporting them. The Sierra Headwaters office of CalTrout, based in Mammoth Lakes CA, focuses on watershed resources planning, restoration and policy to benefit downstream fish populations and human communities. A major focus of these efforts is meadow restoration and protection paired with, and informed by hydrologic, ecologic and soil monitoring. CalTrout is currently recruiting for a dynamic, independent and motivated individual that will serve as the Sierra Headwaters Project Coordinator.
This position offers an exciting opportunity to learn and contribute to advancing ecosystem and fisheries restoration and management. Although not limited to, a major focus for the Project Coordinator position will support meadow restoration projects primarily within the Inyo and Sequoia National Forests.

During the field season (June-September) the position may be based out of Kernville, CA (Housing provided) but this has yet to be determined. During this period, the position will entail extensive field data collection work and project partner coordination.
