Position Summary:

The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group is seeking applicants to lead our habitat restoration program as the Restoration Ecologist. The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group has a 30 year history of working with local landowners and creating diverse partnerships to implement successful salmon habitat restoration projects throughout the Skagit Valley.  The Restoration Ecologist is a full-time position with the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) responsible for assessing salmon habitat, planning and designing restoration projects, managing project construction, and monitoring completed projects primarily in the Skagit and Samish River watersheds.  This position requires excellent communication and organization skills because many projects are in progress at the same time, are at different stages of completion, and demand multiple tasks.   The Restoration Ecologist’s primary task is to plan, design, acquire funds, and construct more complex projects such as re-connecting river side channels and estuary restoration. The Restoration Ecologist also oversees riparian restoration and fish passage improvement projects being implemented by staff they supervise.  The position leads and supervises a team of 3-5 habitat program staff members.  Future funding for this position will be largely dependent upon the incumbent’s ability to generate project funds by writing successful grant proposals.
