Management's Bakersfield Field Office Office, is seeking
*one*Natural/Cultural Management Intern who will dedicate 12 months to
BLM staff in the management and operations activities at Piedras Blancas
Light Station, a BLM Outstanding Natural Area and component of the National
Landscape Conservation System (NLCS).

This is an exciting and historic opportunity to restore a piece of
California's maritime history. Completed in 1875, Piedras Blancas Light
Station is home to more than 60 species of California native plants,
including a thriving population of a variety of thistle listed as threatened
in CA. This healthy population is up from just a single plant in 2001—a
result of BLM heavily investing in the eradication of non-native plants at
the site. With the eradication of roughly 2/3 of the non-native and exotic
species once found at the site, the environs surrounding the Station have
also seen the rebound of a diversity of animal life, including bobcat,
raccoon, skunk, deer, gray fox, rabbit, coyote, squirrels, and a variety of
birds and reptiles. The near shore marine environments have been minimally
impacted by human activity and support healthy populations of southern sea
otters, abalone, mussels, and anemones, while the Outer Islet is a
significant haul-out point for California sea lions. The largest mainland
U.S. rookery for the northern elephant seal stretches for miles to the north
and south of Piedras Blancas.

The Bureau's mission is to "manage and restore the Piedras Blancas Light
Station to a period in history when the site played a significant role in
the protection of central California maritime activities. In addition,

Hi, there,

I just wanted to send along a posting for a tenure-track assistant
professor position at the University of Saskatchewan. I've attached the
pdf with the detailed job description. If you need any additional
information, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Oh, and do feel free to use my USask address - it's liz.robertson@usask.ca. I automatically
signed up for shovelbums.org using my Yahoo address when I saw it via
YahooGroups, but I think maybe should've used my work address...

Thanks very much,

The most important aspect of this list is that it is for one purpose only.: announcing jobs/non paying volunteer postings in the international CRM field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO's, etc...  Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is their treatment of employees the same - as the companies are checking your references, you should also check them out - make sure they pay fair wages, treat their employees professionally, and do quality work.  If you have at least a BA you deserve fair remuneration, so ask for it, and in turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "shovelbum"  - the name is in jest - act professional, expect to be treated like one.
