Florida Conservation Corps Opportunity

Are you interested in working for the Florida Conservation Corps this year? Myakka River State Park has one position available! The Florida Conservation Corps is a wonderful opportunity to get your foot in the door if you are seeking a career in the natural resource management field or simply want to help Florida’s ecosystems. Primary responsibilities for this position include survey and treatment of exotic plants with some environmental interpretation and volunteer recruitment expected. Members will also have the opportunity to train and participate in prescribed fire, in addition to other park maintenance and habitat restoration activities. The position is full time, but provides some flexibility as long as 1700 service hours are completed by the end of December, 2018. Housing is provided by the park. A monthly stipend of around 1100 dollars is provided along with additional benefits. The Florida Conservation Corp is part of the AmeriCorps National Service Program, and thus an educational award in the form of a tuition grant is provided at the completion of a 1700 hour term. If you, or anyone you know, is interested please contact the MRSP resource management office at  (941) 361-6512 and complete an online application through the FLCC website!
