As a member of the Forest Strategy team, the Forest Restoration Project Manager works closely with the Umatilla and Wallowa-Whitman National Forests, as well as local, state, federal, and tribal partners, and other diverse interests, to support planning, implementation, and monitoring of fire-adapted forest restoration activities. They develop the relationships and partnerships necessary to collaborate effectively internally and externally, using strong science communication (written and verbal) and translation skills to engage diverse (often non-science) audiences. They independently evaluate, synthesize, and apply best-available science to inform forest restoration priorities, challenges and opportunities, appropriate treatments, and cost/ benefit tradeoffs. The position is also responsible for planning, supporting, and leading meetings, workshops, trainings, field trips, and other forums with local, state, federal, and tribal agencies, NGOs, and other partners to advance forest restoration strategies and projects. They will develop proposals, write grants, and prepare grant reports in collaboration with partners to secure public and private support for this work. The position may provide support to advance basic research and monitoring to address TNC and partner science needs. They will help plan and deliver programs and activities to advance capacity and support for beneficial fire in the region, such as prescribed fire and cultural fire (in partnership with tribes in the region) use training and capacity building, community outreach, and education.
