Full position description and application instructions
This Extension forester will be part of the Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR) Extension team that provides non-formal education on forestry and natural resource issues to a wide range of audiences. “Non-formal” refers to off-campus, non-credit learning opportunities such as workshops, field trips, property tours, and demonstrations, as well as indoor presentations, narrative communications such as blog posts and other social media, videos, and articles. Educational audiences and partners may include adults who are private woodland owners, homeowners in the wildland-urban interface, professional natural resource managers such as foresters and forest workers, collaborative conservation groups and watershed councils, tribes, policymakers, economic development officials, and teachers. Extension foresters also commonly engage a broad spectrum of youth through teacher professional development or directly through outdoor schools, camps, and other youth events. Educational topics could include sustaining forest health, wildlife habitats, and forest productivity through subjects such as forest ecology, silviculture, wildfire preparedness, reforestation, forest restoration, water resources, climate change, bioenergy, and collaborative conservation and recreation.
