The Invasive Plant Management Individual Placement is based in Washington, D.C. working directly with the National Capital Region of the National Park Service. This 10-month AmeriCorps position will serve as a member of the IPMT, focusing on control of invasive plant species using mechanical and chemical control methods which include but are not limited to herbicide application via backpack sprayers and gas operated tank sprayers, chainsaws, brush cutters, hand saws, pruners and loppers. In addition, the IPs will be trained on overall resource management, encouraged to attend NPS-sponsored trainings, and to take part in the activities of other resource programs. While this position is primarily field-based there may be some office-based responsibilities involving the use of GIS and paper and electronic files to conduct invasive plant ranking, evaluate tools for mobile data collection, collect data and/or perform data analysis, contribute to the development of reports, and assist in the development of communication materials.
During their terms, Interns will receive training and certifications to be able to identify and treat a variety of invasive plant species. This position is heavily field based and involves frequent travel to parks in the capital region and daily physical activity.
