DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION PROJECT MANAGER
Classification: Non-Exempt Reports To: Restoration Program Manager
Part-Time: (20+ Hours) Pay Rate: $30-$34
Job Summary: This position merges the aspirations of Sonoma Ecology Center’s mission, to help our community achieve and sustain ecological health, with best available science and the site-specific goals of landowners and managers who seek to improve their landscapes.
As the climate warms, and water becomes scarce or comes too fast, as fire risk becomes a perennial concern, and as threats to biodiversity mount, landscapes designed and managed by humans are increasingly key to solving these multiple challenges at the same time. The ideal candidate will work closely with our Restoration team, and with our Resilient Landscapes Coalition partnership, to design and oversee installation of innovative projects on residential, business, and government landscapes of different scales that meet this multiple-solutions objective.
Sonoma Ecology Center is a 31-year-old nonprofit with a mission to work with and for our community to identify and lead actions that achieve and sustain ecological health in Sonoma Valley. We drive important land, water, biodiversity, research, and climate initiatives in the North Bay and beyond. We have 40 staff members, and manage multiple grants and contracts, often in partnership with other agencies, so that we may better leverage our important resources and knowledge base.
