2015 Amargosa Conservancy Invasive Plant Treatment Technician
Nevada Conservation Corps
Posted 10/19/15
Position runs 11/30/15 - 3/11/16
As an Invasive Plant Treatment Technician for the Amargosa Conservancy, you will become a member of a five person restoration crew focused on eradication of tamarisk.  Tamarisk or salt cedar, Tamarix ramosissima, was introduced into the United States as an ornamental and stream bank stabilizing plant in the late 19th and early 20thcenturies.  Since that time the tamarisk tree has taken over and become the dominant plant in many of the riparian areas of the southwest deserts due to the ability to absorb large amounts of water and deposit salts on the soil surface that prevent the growth of native vegetation. The Amargosa drainage has been heavily impacted by tamarisk over the years, much to the detriment of the native vegetation and the birds and animals it supported.  Starting about ten years ago, the Amargosa Conservancy, working with the BLM and the Nature Conservancy, began a concerted effort to remove tamarisk along the Amargosa River, starting in Shoshone and working downstream, as well as at China Ranch.  The removal process involves the use of chainsaws to cut the tree and application of herbicide to prevent regrowth.  The crew will also be responsible for documenting their restoration efforts utilizing photo points and GPS tracks to establish project boundaries.  At the end of the field season the crew will spend one week preparing a report for Amargosa Conservancy staff detailing the work completed and providing data points to be used in future eradication project planning.
