  • Post-fire vegetation and fuels measurements in recently burned forests
  • Measuring long-term old-growth forest plots

    We acknowledge our work in the PNW is located on homelands of Indigenous peoples, and we have a responsibility to reflect on the histories of dispossession and forced removal of the original inhabitants, as well as the resilience and vibrancy of their cultures today.

    During work stints, vehicles, roundtrip travel from Seattle to sampling locations, food, and lodging will be provided at no cost (in addition to hourly pay).
    Lodging will consist primarily of camping with potential for occasional field housing (not guaranteed).

    Lodging is not provided on off-days.
