These AmeriCorps national service positions are contingent on funding and open until filled. Ecostudies Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of native species and their ecosystems. We address complex environmental challenges with effective partnerships, conservation research, and strategic, science-based management. Because ecological conservation is vitally linked to community, we promote environmental justice by removing barriers to engagement and improving access to environmental education and career opportunities for underserved populations. Ecostudies Institute works to conserve and restore prairie and oak woodland habitat for native plants, birds mammals and butterflies - some of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Ecostudies seeks four full-time AmeriCorps members to fill prairie restoration service opportunities throughout southwest Washington. All members will learn restoration and monitoring techniques, contribute to regional restoration efforts, and become involved in the PNW conservation community. We will begin interviews for these 10.5 month positions in June 2023 and positions begin in October 2023.
