Fred Phillips Consulting (FPC) is looking for 2 seed collection crew members for two 1-week long work hitches in Grand Teton National Park (GTNP), Wyoming (total 80 hours). The first hitch will be July 27-31 (40 hours), and the second hitch will be August 10-15 (40 hours). FPC specializes in award-winning design, including ecological restoration, parks, trails, wetland delineations, and environmental monitoring and compliance. Candidates for this position will be working in Wyoming to collect native grass and forb seed to be used for sage grouse habitat restoration. This position will include (but not be limited to) the following duties:
1. Collection of native plant seeds in GTNP
2. Primitive camping in GTNP
Successful candidates must be able to work and camp in remote locations (moose, bison, and bear country) in challenging conditions and work as part of a team. Experience with ecological restoration, native seed collection, and working in remote wilderness areas preferred. If inclement weather occurs that delays work days, the crew will adjust schedule to allow for 40 hours total of seed collection time.
FPC will provide a weekly food allowance and will pay for camping fees during both work hitches. Crew members expected to provide their own transportation to GTNP. FPC will provide transportation to collection sites during the work week within the Park. Candidates will be required to camp at remote locations during field work due to the location of the project. Water and toilet facilities will be available, but camping will be primitive. Crew Members will need to provide their own camping gear to use during the week. Outdoor guiding and field experience is preferred.
