These projects are designed to evaluate traditional and novel restoration practices based on ecological processes that influence natural recovery and evaluate locally-adapted plant materials used in arid land restoration through multiple common gardens across the Mojave Desert.
This is an AmeriCorps position, and candidates will receive a living stipend of $18,700 for the season. This is not an hourly wage or a salary and is paid to members every other week throughout the service term.
