The Institute for Regional Conservation is looking for paid field personnel to assist with rare plant surveys in the Big Cypress National Preserve. Surveys will take place over three to six weeks during April and May 2012. Surveys would be conducted during 3-4-day long trips (Monday/Tuesday – Thursday/Friday) over this time period. Field personnel would also be required to:

·         Camp over night in remote areas with no facilities

·         Work long field days (12+ hours)

·         Be able to hike up to 10 miles per day

·         Be able to identify target plant species given a brief crash course

·         Provide personal camping equipment, food, water and appropriate field clothes


·         $15/hr including travel time to and from Miami (anticipated 39 – 51 hrs per week)

·         $20 per-diem (per night) for supplies and food

·         Excellent opportunity to learn about South Florida ecosystems, gain experience in plant identification and field sampling techniques and gain hands-on experience in conservation biology.
If interested or if you have any questions, please contact Steven Green with available dates. Participation for the duration of the project is not required.
