|Description of Employer||American Conservation Experience, a nonprofit Conservation Corps, in partnership with BLM Roseburg District Office, is seeking One Noxious Weeds Team Member to contribute to invasive plants management projects alongside BLM Staff.
The BLM will strive to provide the members with opportunities to shadow conservation professionals to learn about botanical disciplines. However, a foundational knowledge of botany and plant identification is required for this position and prior experience in the field is preferred.
|Description of Location||There are numerous hiking, camping, and water sport opportunities on lands managed by Roseburg BLM, Umpqua National Forest, and Crater Lake National Park. The many rivers and lakes within western Oregon provide both whitewater and flat water boating opportunities. The North Umpqua River east of Roseburg is internationally recognized for its fishing. The larger communities of Eugene, Medford, and Portland are one, two, and three hours drive, respectively, from Roseburg. These cities have airports and all of the amenities of larger communities including large music and theater venues.
The town of Roseburg is located at an elevation of 465 feet. Average temperatures range from a low of 36 degrees in the winter to a high of 86 degrees in the summer. Some 100 degree days are to be expected in the summer. Average annual rainfall is approximately 33 inches. Snowfall on the valley floor is unusual, and summer humidity is very low.
The BLM Roseburg District stretches from the foothills of the coastal range to the foothills of the Cascade mountains. Much of the terrain is steep and uneven. Vegetation ranges from forests dominated by Douglas-fir to oak woodland and grasslands. Poison oak is common in non-forested sites. Ticks are common, especially in grassy or shrubby areas. Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are known to occur within the area. Some field locations have poor or no cell-phone reception; however, the BLM will supply two-way radios with excellent coverage and dispatch support. Most BLM roads are natural dirt- or gravel-surfaced. After completing a driving assessment conducted by the BLM, the Members will drive BLM vehicles.
