California Trout (CalTrout) is looking for an energetic, organized, and mature college-aged individual to assist in the delivery of CalTrout’s 2013 Hat Creek Youth Initiative. The Team Leader will work under the guidance of the CalTrout Project Coordinator, to supervise and manage a field crew of 5 high school students in various stream-bank restoration and scientific monitoring projects. The Hat Creek Youth Initiative is in support of CalTrout’s River Parkway Project and the larger efforts of restoring Hat Creek’s Wild Trout Area. The Team Leader will have opportunities to network with a diverse range of Natural Resource Professionals, and will receive career training and guidance from CalTrout Staff.
Mandatory Requirements of the Position:
Interested persons with experience and/or education in the following activities are encouraged to apply:
The Team Leader will be based during the field season in either Fall River Mills or Burney, in Northern California for the duration of the summer. Having access to your own personal vehicle is mandatory, as there are limited public transportation options in the rural towns of Fall River Mills and Burney. Housing is not provided, but assistance in finding a room/rental can be accommodated. The area offers numerous opportunities for fishing, hiking, camping and recreating. The town of Burney is located an hour from the city of Redding, CA where there are amenities that the small-town of Burney does not offer.
This position does not include benefits or paid holidays. Contingent upon success and interest, the Team Leader would be considered for extended full-time employment up to but not later than October 31, 2013 in order to facilitate fall internships. Due to quick turn-around, the individual would need to be available in Burney, California by early June.
