Job Opportunity: Sheldon Fence Crew
12-week field season is May 31 to August 31, 2011
Friends of Nevada Wilderness is looking for folk to remove old, dangerous barbed-wire fence and to construct spring exclosures on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge. Help the antelope, sage grouse and other native critters by removing fence that can injure or kill these animals and by protecting the springs that they depend on for water.
You will need to be in excellent physical condition because the job entails a lot of hiking while carrying tools and fence materials in the wild.
The rewards: salary, room, board, some of the best scenery in Nevada, and working with folk who care about the wild. Your "office" will be the truly wide-open spaces of northwest Nevada, and you will be based on the wildlife refuge, itself — a five-hour drive from Reno.
We are looking to fill a crew of six. Interested individuals should contact Pat Bruce, Stewardship Program Director, at SEE CONTACT INFO AT THE FRIENDS OF NEVADA WILDERNESS
