The Pierce Conservation District specializes in technical assistance and education to help protect surrounding natural resources. With our Environmental Education program, we deliver lessons and field trips for students of all ages.
The topics include salmon, water quality, native plants, habitat, and others. The lessons are meant to be hands-on and engage students in the learning. We also attend community events and school science nights to bring our information to the public.
In the Habitat Improvement program we work with partners to restore natural areas by removing invasive plants and installing native plants. This work is done with community members, conservation corps teams, local students, and other groups to improve water quality and salmon habitat. Our Agricultural Assistance program also aims to protect water quality by working with various groups, including landowners, on projects such as fencing and manure management.
This program often uses workshops and site visits with landowners to deliver educational messages and techniques that benefit both the landowner and the environment. This position is contingent on funding. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.
