East Bay Conservation Analyst Position Announced

The job announcement for the East Bay Conservation Analyst is now open. The position works closely with the Chapter’s Conservation Committee volunteers to protect and steward the East Bay’s rich and rare native flora in the face of proposed development and public land management projects in Contra Costa and Alameda counties (see the 2019 Conservation summary for a run down of the current projects the Chapter is involved in).

The Conservation Analyst analyzes the impacts of new development and land management projects on rare plants and communities of native plants, collaborates with local environmental and community organizations, helps organize campaigns to protect native flora, and communicates updates and ways to get involved to members and the larger community. It is managed by the East Bay Chapter, comes with full benefits, and is under the umbrella of CNPS policies. The position is part-time at 3 days a week.

Over this last year the Board took a close look at the position in light of the rapidly increasing housing costs in the Bay Area and was able to increase the position salary rate thanks to generous donations from Chapter members.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in applying, please let them know about the position job description on the CNPS website. The position is open until filled.
