Our Wildland Restoration Team Leader has an opportunity to keep wild places wild.  Watershed systems, native plants and animals, public health, and recreation all depend on healthy ecosystems and is why this position is so important! Wildland Restoration Teams participate in a variety of innovative wetlands and habitat restoration projects, including managing invasive plants through herbicide application, seed collection, and various mesic restoration techniques including beaver mimicry.  Projects are often rigorous, requiring participants to carry a heavy backpack sprayer and working in hot weather across rugged terrain while wearing protective gear.  These crews have an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of large landscape conservation initiatives.  Wildland Restoration Teams mitigate invasive plants in the remote Selway Bitterroot Wilderness, Glacier & Yellowstone National Parks, and on the breathtaking plains of eastern Montana. Crew Leaders also earn Herbicide Applicators Licenses.  

Our Wildland Restoration Team (Mesic Restoration) in Helena will work with mesic restoration techniques and in-stream beaver-dam analog construction, a simple, effective, and non-invasive approach to riparian restoration. This crew will work with a diverse range of stakeholders (private, government, and non-profit) in order to achieve large scale land conservation efforts with rural communities throughout the state of Montana. This is a great opportunity for recent college graduates who have experience in restoration to gain practical field experience in a rapidly growing area of conservation, with and a strong potential for future career paths.
