The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego is seeking an experienced Project Manager to lead the development, implementation, and monitoring of forestry and fire prevention programs which include facilitating a regional forest and fire priority planning process, coordinating roadside vegetation management along county-maintained roads, and supporting a portfolio of forest pest management and demonstration projects.

All District employees are required to work collaboratively across departments and to serve as a positive role model for other employees by supporting the mission, vision, and values of the District. This individual will possess an understanding of sustainable forestry practices, national forest management policies, and a passion for ecological forest and watershed restoration. At home among the trees, in nature, and with fellow environmentalists, the right candidate will be equally interested in building collegial and productive working relationships with foresters, landowners, scientists, and partner agency representatives. With a deep base of natural resource management, the Project Manager will help implement projects designed to increase the health and resilience of the forests, protecting and advocating for the ecological, social, and economic values that these forests provide. The ideal candidate is an experienced forest/fire ecologist, forester, or related natural resource conservation project manager with a background in forest health and fire resiliency and a solid history of project implementation and management.
