The Western Wildlands WRT late summer/fall project work will expose our participants to landscape scale wildland restoration efforts and practices through a diverse project base located Western Montana.
Participants will gain experience and proficiency in chainsaw use during forest thinning projects focusing on the reduction of wildlfire risk and the development of wildlife habitat. Additional project work will feature a range of wildland and wetland restoration techniques including beaver mimicry, native plant revegetation, erosion control, and invasive plant management.
This WRT position offers an educational, fun, and challenging experience in on-the-ground conservation practices intended to restore public lands by encouraging and supplementing historical natural processes through a crew-based, field oriented experience. Candidates interested in developing or pursuing career in wildland restoration, forestry, natural resource management and related fields, or candidates who simply want to work hard and gain valuable skills in beautiful landscapes are encouraged to apply.
