Following the region's passage of the parks and natural areas management levy in May, Metro is hiring for a variety of positions to accomplish the levy's goals, which include park improvements, habitat restoration, and more.
Positions are available in the areas of natural area restoration and stewardship, regional parks planning, parks operations, and community outreach.
Job titles range from natural resources technician, to senior regional planner, to park ranger, although position descriptions are subject to change following adoption of the levy's first-year work plan.
Sixteen positions have been identified for the levy's first year of implementation, said Kathleen Brennan-Hunter, natural areas program director with Metro, adding that each and every position is "focused on delivering services on the ground."
"People in these jobs will work directly with the region's parks and natural areas," she said.
While Metro may continue to add new jobs throughout the levy's five-year duration, the bulk of positions will be available in the coming months as restoration and stewardship projects take shape and get off the ground.
