Career Profile

Environmental Education Career Profiles Career Advice From the EE Professionals Photo courtesy of Teton Science Schools

The Green Career Journal’s purpose is to feature environmental jobs and to give advice on how to enter into an environmental career. Our focus this month is on the environmental education (EE) field. Our aim is to include a sample of interviews from individuals currently in the environmental education field. To this end, we have included the Green Career Journal’s interview results from four environmental education professionals: Ms. Kara Wooldrick provides her insight from her current position with the Maine Audubon Society; Mr. Jason Taylor provides insight from his current position at the Ecological Society of America; Ms. Alyssa Hawkins provides her insight as Director of Green Earth Force, Inc; and Ms. Patti Girard provides her insight as Principal of the Learning Gate Community School in Lutz, Florida. We are grateful that these professionals took time out of their busy schedules to focus on what it takes to become an environmental educator is a very competitive job market.

Kara Wooldrick

Maine Audubon Society GCJ: How did you get started in the environmental education field? What is the most fulfilling part of your job? KW: I was first introduced to EE in a college course and then proceeded to teach children with disabilities and then Pre School. I found myself always bringing the children outside so that they could connect with nature. I then worked at the local nature center which launched me into EE full time. I haven’t looked back since. The most fulfilling part of my job is facilitating the connection between my group and nature…when they become fascinated and then realize they care and then figure out how to act on that affinity so as to have a positive affect on the world. GCJ: Do you think standardized tests hinder environmental education from being taught in the classroom? Is this an obstacle or are there many? KW: I think standardized tests hinder creativity in all types of education. The intention behind the tests is honorable but the implementation through one form of assessment is not relevant. Yes, standardized tests are an obstacle. Yes, there are many obstacles, like people’s fear of taking children outdoors for liability reasons. GCJ: What is the future of environmental education and the educators themselves? Do you see it increasing, decreasing, or remaining the same? Why? KW: Certainly the need for environmental education is only going to increase. Until something radical happens, funding will continue to decline. The EE field needs to make itself relevant to the real world so that the public understands how crucial it is to the health of our communities.

GCJ: What type of positions exists in your organization? What do they do? Internships? KW: We have about 40 different positions here. So, I couldn’t possibly describe what everyone does to run a nonprofit organization. We do have a large variety internships that are formed based on the intersection of the goals and objectives of the intern and Maine Audubon. GCJ: How can current students, recent graduates, and career switchers get started in environmental education? What courses, majors, minors? What skills, abilities, and characteristics do you look for in potential employees? KW: In order to be considered for one of our seasonal positions, an applicant must have teaching experience of some sort, even if it was teaching as a volunteer about some content area other than the environment. They must have a strong interest and passion for the natural world. An applicant must inherently be a team player who is flexible because the weather changes and groups show up early for programs and you never know what may happen when you are outdoors. Our year-round positions are usually filled by people who have a Masters degree in Education or Environmental Studies. GCJ: Where do you post your jobs and internships? KW: On our website, on relevant online job boards/ listservs and in the local papers. GCJ: How many people does your organization employ? KW: 45 year-round employees and about 35 seasonal employees. GCJ: What is the salary range? KW: $25K-60K for a large range of positions throughout the organization. EE salaries range from $26K-34K GCJ: What organizations to do recommend becoming a member of and conferences to attend? KW: For someone new to the field, I would say join any local group of EE folks and join your state EE org to get a sense of the field. Go to their conferences until you think that you have a good feel for the EE field in your state. I also recommend going to the NAAEE conference when you are new so that you get a sense of the bigger picture of EE in North America. GCJ: What would you like to convey to future Environmental Educators? Advice, words of wisdom? KW: EE needs to be relevant to people’s lives. If someone is worried about putting food on their table for their family, they are not going to care if there is habitat protection for threatened species. But, they are going to care about food, water and air safety and the health of their loved ones. So, connect with people where they are, not where you want them to be. Poverty, literacy, unemployment…they all become environmental “issues” at some point. So, connect with “untraditional” partners in your work to find solutions to local “issues”. Solutions are much more difficult and

rewarding to find than problems. Seek and highlight the positive solutions.

Jason Taylor

Ecological Society of America GCJ: How did you get started in the environmental education field? What is the most fulfilling part of your job? Jason Taylor (JT): I have always been interested in both learning about the natural world and sharing this knowledge with others. I suspect this interest stemmed from living in a rural area and taking many camping trips with my family. This curiosity of nature followed me to university where it was almost driven away by boring lectures and limited venues for expressing my interests in science and ecology. One summer while working as a naturalist I saw an inspirational lecture by Dr. Brock Fenton, a bat biologist, who while showing the diversity of bats in the world also reaffirmed that ecology and science could be fun and interesting. I later completed a master’s degree with Dr. Fenton who encouraged me to look beyond the traditional definition of a science degree and pursue both my interest in ecology and education. The most fulfilling part of my job is watching students move through life. From the age of 16 I worked various jobs as a naturalist or educator sharing knowledge with others. The largest challenges were overcoming the dryness of Biology 101 and identifying a career that would satisfy my interest in both ecology and education. I have a B.Sc. in Biology and a Masters in Environmental Studies. Over my career as a naturalist and ecologist I have worked at a museum of natural history and started a business (Nature Talks) that designed and implemented environmental education programs for elementary schools, resorts, and National Parks. GCJ: What does environmental education mean to your organization and how do you share it with the community? JT: We focus on the scientific and ecological aspects of environmental education. We share this in a number of ways including field trips, a digital library, and sessions at our Annual Meeting. GCJ: Do you think standardized tests hinder environmental education from being taught in the classroom? Is this an obstacle? Are there obstacles in this field? JT: I think that standardized tests can hinder environmental education from being taught in the classroom and it is certainly an obstacle in some states. GCJ: What is the future of environmental education and the educators themselves? Do you see it increasing, decreasing, or staying the same? JT: As humans place even more pressure on the earth there will be more need for environmental continued page 15

EPA Honors Blacksburg, VA as First U.S. Town to Join New National Environmental Program PHILADELPHIA - Earlier in August of this year, during a ceremony in Blacksburg, VA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mid-Atlantic regional administrator Donald S. Welsh recognized the Town of Blacksburg for being the first municipality in the country to enroll in the voluntary National Partnership for Environmental Priorities. The program challenges businesses and manufacturers to become more environmentally aware and to adopt a resource conservation ethic that results in less waste, more recycling, and more environmentallysound products.

Improperly disposed of cadmium batteries, such as those used in cell phones, cordless telephones, video cameras, and cordless power tools can leach into and contaminate soil and groundwater. Exposure to high levels of cadmium in water and food can cause severe stomach irritation, vomiting and diarrhea. Because cadmium accumulates in the body, long term exposure even at low levels can lead to kidney and skeletal damage.

“The Town of Blacksburg has demonstrated its progressive environmental leadership in the past, but today a bigger challenge has been met,” EPA regional administrator Donald S. Welsh said. “By enrolling in this national program, the Town of Blacksburg serves as a model for other cities and towns across the country by addressing chemical risks within the community and increasing the conservation of resources.” The National Partnership for Environmental Priorities Program encourages public and private organizations to form partnerships with EPA that commit to reduce the use or release of any of 31 priority chemicals. These priority chemicals have been targeted because they can accumulate in living organisms or have high toxicity levels. EPA, working in conjunction with the public and various industries, has set a goal to reduce the use or release of four million pounds of priority chemicals by 2011. As a new waste minimization partner, Blacksburg has committed to reduce electronic waste by eliminating the use of lead weights on town vehicles. Lead weights are clipped to the wheel rims of every automobile in the United States to balance the tires. An estimated 13 percent of these weights come loose and fall off, entering the environment. When they do, they have the potential to contaminate soil and groundwater. As a new partner, the Towns commitment represents the elimination of 325 pounds of lead by December 2007. In addition to becoming a waste minimization partner, the Town of Blacksburg is also the recipient of a $95,000 Resource Conservation Challenge grant to implement programs and create partnerships to conserve resources through waste reduction. “Participating in U.S. EPA’s Resource Conservation Challenge through this grant program has already brought together over two dozen community groups with shared goals who are eager to partner and bring about local solutions to national environmental issues,” said Marc Verneil, Blacksburg Town Manager. Blacksburg will also encourage commercial property managers to recycle mercury containing fluorescent lights, and raise community awareness of the importance of recycling rechargeable cadmium batteries.

The Town of Blacksburg, VA is located in South-Western VA and is home to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Blacksburg also has agreed to form a collaborative partnership with groups representing all aspects of the community, including citizen groups, businesses, government, academic institutions, and non-profits, called Sustainable Blacksburg. The voluntary partnership the town has created has a mission to develop a collaborative network that works to create a greener community. Partnership members will participate in the development and implementation of programs to reduce resource usage, recycle materials, and create reuse initiatives. Partners will work with the community to provide outreach, educational assistance and raise awareness. NPEP is just one component of EPAs Resource Conservation Challenge, a national effort to minimize waste through resource conservation, recycling and reuse. Blacksburg also received the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality’s Virginia Environmental Excellence Award.

Utah Environmental Education Certification Program In 2001, the Utah Society for Environmental Education (USEE) began the development of the first competencybased certification program for environmental educators in North America. Through a grant from the Environmental Education Training and Partnership (EETAP) and guidance from the North American Association for Environmental Education’s (NAAEE) National Project for Excellence in EE, USEE assembled a diverse team of experienced environmental educators from across the state and worked with representatives from a variety of national organizations to set specific standards of knowledge, skills, and experience for highly qualified environmental educators in Utah. These standards better define the environmental education (EE) profession within the state of Utah, and meeting these requirements helps foster the professional development of EE providers as individuals and as a professional community. In 2003, thirty-five local environmental educators and program providers were invited to participate in the launching of the program at an initial Certification Summit. This three-day summit was designed to create a pool of educators that could jump start the program and provide mentorship to future candidates. To date, USEE has certified an additional 12 individuals through the process and dozens more have enrolled in the program. Certification has a variety of benefits for individuals, organizations, and the field of EE. Individual educators often find that the certification process serves as an important step in their professional development. In meeting high standards of the program, candidates more fully master both the theory and practice of EE, making them more effective as professionals. Perhaps equally important is the statewide network of professional environmental educators that the program fosters. Many organizations report that they find the certification program helpful in identifying qualified environmental educators. Though certification does not guarantee the competence of individuals in addressing specific environmental topics, certification does attest that environmental educators have met minimum standards regarding comprehension and experience within the field of EE. The certification process is designed for those who have some experience in the field. To begin the certification program, educators must meet certain minimum requirements. Once admitted, each candidate works with a certified mentor to demonstrate that he or she has the experience, knowledge, and skills required for certification. Candidates for certification must also understand and agree to uphold high ethical standards in the practice of EE. For more information on the Utah Environmental Education Certification Program, please contact USEE at 801-328-1549, info@use.org or visit www.usee.org.

By recycling fluorescent lights, the amount of potential mercury released into the environment is reduced. Mercury is a neurotoxin which can negatively impact on human health. Especially sensitive to the effects of mercury exposure are children and pregnant women.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Increased Opportunities Related to Pollution Prevention

by Lillian-Rose R. Aulds

Recycling is a key component to environmental sustainability and pollution prevention. However, in order for it to be effective, there is a three part process or “loop”, involving the actions - reduce, reuse, recycle. They are interconnected and dependant on one another. When you throw your aluminum can or plastic bottle in a recycling bin, you have only taken part in one step of the process. In order for the item to truly be recycled, it has to be put to use, or re-use. This “closes the loop” and thus makes the recycling process a success. Put simply, in order for recycling to work, the items collected must be put to some use or sold. In recent decades, recycling has become a common routine in many households, creating a growing supply for the post-consumer products market, along with a booming job sector. The development of the recycling industry can be attributed to many different factors. Robin King, Vice President, Public Affairs of The Aluminum Association, points to the rising prices of materials, which in turn increases the effort to reclaim commodities from the waste stream. Another factor, according to Mary Jarrett, owner of Amazing Recycled Products, could be the increased accessibility of post-consumer products in regular stores; in essence, increased demand for these products because of increased visibility leads to sellers and manufacturers buying recycled materials. For most industry professionals, the reason behind the growth of the recycling industry is clearly environmental. “There is a bigger emphasis on waste reduction, to conserve landfill space, as well as pollution avoidance and energy conservation,” says Bob Besso, Regional Recycling Manager for NorCal Waste Systems, Inc. in San Francisco. Whatever the reason behind the increased interest in recycling, almost everyone in the industry agrees that the entire recycling field has grown considerably. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s website, “Twenty years ago, only one curbside recycling program existed in the United States, which collected several materials at the curb. By 1998, 9,000 curbside programs and 12,000 recyclable drop-off centers had sprouted up across the nation. As of 1999, recycling and composting activities prevented about 64 million tons of material from ending up in landfills and incinerators. Today, this country recycles 28 percent of its waste, a rate that has almost doubled during the past 15 years.” The increase in recycling activities has led to an obvious increase in job opportunities. In one example involving

the market for reused materials, when Jarrett started her online store in 1995, the customer base was small and the competition was smaller. Today, she sees recycled products wholesalers and retailers everywhere. The high demand for recycled products by end users has actually led to a supply shortage from collectors in areas like glass products, according to Joe Cattaneo, president of The Glass Packaging Institute. Cattaneo thinks that current recycling systems are not keeping up with the need for reclaiming an increasing amount of materials.

congress and Expo is scheduled for October 22-25, 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia. While SWANA just hosted their annual conference, the next event, known as WasteCon 2007, will be held October 16-18 in Reno, Nevada. The association “serves over 7,500 members throughout North America, and thousands more with conferences, certifications, publications, and technical training courses”. They are industry leaders in solid waste and recycling education, with many certifications related to waste and recycling.

The careers available in the recycling industry are as diverse as the activities. There are too many jobs to list involved in collection, processing, manufacturing and redistributing of recyclables. Opportunities are available with both public agencies, like municipal waste collection, and commercial companies, like Amazing Recycled Products, as well as non-government and nonprofit, like the American Plastics Council.

Besso gives one piece of advice to jobseekers: “Get exposure and experience, even if it’s volunteer. Community based recycling centers or recycling programs on campus are great starting points, something that doesn’t just sound good but shows that they got their hands dirty. I just recently hired someone who ran the recycling program on her college campus and she also did an internship in South America working with a methane composter that ran off pig manure. That shows me commitment (to recycling).”

With such a range of jobs available, qualifications will vary substantially. “Its quite vertical, all the way from blue collar labor force up to managerial positions with municipal and commercial groups, “states King. He gives the example of a municipal solid waste manager requiring a degree, probably post graduate. Besso, who recently hired three entry level employees in the recycling division of NorCal Waste Systems, Inc. prefers college graduates with a degree related to environment or some earth science background. He says, “the things we do aren’t necessarily pretty and attractive, I’m looking for someone who’s going to be happy at doing this.” For jobseekers looking for trade associations or similar organizations, the recycling industry has no shortage. There are groups that focus on specific materials, such as The Glass Packaging Institute, a trade organization which connects and represents recycled glass manufacturers and processors. Another such group is The Aluminum Association, which represents aluminum producers and recyclers. Other trade organizations include the American Plastics Council, the Steel Recycling Institute, and the American Forest and Paper Association. However the most well-known and diversified groups in the industry are the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and the National Recycling Coalition (NRC). Both organizations are well-known and provide a great starting point for graduates and jobseekers looking to enter the recycling field. According to the NRC website, they are a “membership organization of recycling professionals and advocates dedicated to maximizing recycling”. Their 25th Annual

Close Date: Until Filled. Assistantship Position - The Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management is seeking candidates for a Ph.D. research assistantship. Project description: An understanding of the interrelations of woody plants, wildlife communities, and livestock on prairies of the Southern Great Plains is essential for understanding how to manage these prairies for specific ecological objectives. Any such management in this region usually will occur on private land, so the economic effects of management decisions must be taken into consideration. The objective of this project is to develop empirical and theoretical models that predict how variable quantities of woody plants influence wildlife communities, livestock behavior, and revenue on private lands in the Southern Great Plains. The objective will entail GIS analyses of landscapes, baseline surveys of the economic value of wildlife, and estimation of revenue streams under alternative management scenarios, among other activities. The project can be tailored to students whose career interests are in economics, forestry, rangeland ecology, or wildlife ecology. Duration: 3 years beginning Spring Semester 2007.

(from page 5)

educators. I think that there will be a great increase in environmental education over the next decade. GCJ: What types of positions exist in your organization? What do they do? Internships? JT: We have full time education positions and education interns. They work on various issues related to ecology education including organizing field trips, coordinating fellowships, working with science and environmental education policy. GCJ: How can current students, recent graduates, and career switchers get started in EE? What education background? What skills, abilities, and characteristics do you look for in a potential employee? JT: I learned about EE careers by talking with naturalists, ecologists, and educators who were involved in the profession. I look for people who are flexible and able to work independently. GCJ: Where do you post your jobs? JT: www.esa.org GCJ: How many people does your organization employ? JT: 35 GCJ: What is the salary range? JT: Depends on position GCJ: What organizations do you recommend becoming a member of and conferences to attend? JT: North American Association of Environmental Educators, Ecological Society of America GCJ: What would you like to convey to future environmental educators? Advice, words of wisdom? JT: Learn to communicate your knowledge and interest of EE in as many different ways as possible. Don’t be afraid to try something that steps outside the traditional academic pipeline model.

Alyssa Hawkins Green Earth Force:

GCJ: How did you get started in the environmental education field? What is the most fulfilling part of your job? Aylssa Hawkins (AH): I started working in environmental education right out of college. I graduated with a degree in Natural Resources from the University of Minnesota and found my niche working with people rather than the aquatic insects that had monopolized my college coursework. Today the most fulfilling part of my job is connecting with educators and students and helping to create empowering experiences around protecting their local watersheds. GCJ: What does environmental education mean to your organization and how do you share it with the community? AH: At Earth Force (www.earthforce.org), environmental education is about providing young people with authentic experiences that not only convey knowledge and awareness about environmental issues in their communities but also develops the skills and excitement to work towards making positive change. We share this through our work with middle school students and classroom educators in 17 states around the country, using a six-step process that helps meet academic standards by moving students from inquiry

to action around a local issue. GCJ: Do you think standardized tests hinder environmental education from being taught in the classroom? Is this an obstacle or are there many? AH: Standardized testing is here to stay. Unfortunately, the emphasis on standardized testing has forced many schools and teachers to abandon their most motivating, memorable, and hands-on lessons. In Photo courtesy Teton Science contrast to such an either/or Schools mentality, Earth Force demonstrates that motivating, hands-on projects can be used to meet rigorous academic standards. Environmental education is an underutilized tool that can help students perform well on tests while also creating an excitement for learning. The goal for many proponents of environmental education is to move people from thinking of environmental education as an ‘extra’ subject or elective course to infusing environmental education more clearly into required coursework, such as science, language arts, math and civics. It is the unique role of organizations like Earth Force, and many others, to assist educators with infusing their mandated curriculums with programs and processes that make the required learning authentic and experiential with the environment as the central topic. GCJ: What is the future of environmental education and the educators themselves? Do you see it increasing, decreasing, or remaining the same? Why? AH: There is a great opportunity at this time in history to shift our focus, energy, and resources towards promoting environmental education, especially in the k-12 education system. Today, the average citizen is receiving daily messages about global warming and other environmental issues through both the news media and the entertainment industry. Absent some form of environmental education in school systems, the average citizen will have little to no means of creating a context for this information nor will they have the skills to actually address the root causes of environmental issues. Environmental educators must have a sense of urgency around environmental causes—including securing a stronger place for environmental education in k-12 school systems. Of course, this requires support from parents, school leaders, communities, elected officials, and businesses. It also requires new funding to support the professional development of educators. Without a direct investment in educators and the institutions and organizations that support school programs, environmental education may miss out on its greatest opportunity in decades. GCJ: What type of positions exists in your organization? What do they do? Internships? AH: At Earth Force we employ many different types of people, all of whom are valuable in making our programs successful. We have executive directors who run individual Earth Force field offices around the country, and working with them are program managers who work directly with educators and students in schools in their communities. All our staff members have varied backgrounds, including technical environmental work, formal teaching experience, nonformal teaching experience, community and youth organizing, etc. We also employ talented development and marketing staff, some folks who do graphic design, a contracted public relations firm, and financial gurus. We do offer internships at our field offices, including our national office in Alexandria, Virginia. These

are unpaid and often geared specifically towards the interests of the intern. GCJ: How can current students, recent graduates, and career switchers get started in environmental education? What courses, majors, minors? What skills, abilities, and characteristics do you look for in potential employees? AH: As with any field, getting started can be challenging. These are not the highest paying jobs in the world, but the work is very rewarding so it might be worthwhile to try some volunteer opportunities to see what you enjoy most. If you’re in school, get as much practice communicating with different groups of people as you can. Environmental education is essentially a communications puzzle, and the more experience you have solving the puzzle with different groups, the more fun it will be for you. When Earth Force is seeking new employees, we look for someone with a genuine interest in this work. As with many other jobs, good communication skills are a must. The environmental world is a great place for people interested in life-long learning. There are always innovations to learn about and apply to our work. The ability to be an effective networker is also essential. Like other non-profit organizations, we accomplish so much more by working with others. As a national organization, Earth Force also recruits new staff to build organizational capacity— positions in accounting, fundraising, marketing and public relations add a great deal of value to our efforts as well. GCJ: Where do you post your jobs and internships? AH: We often post our jobs in local papers, at local universities, and on e-jobs. For people interested in environmental work, Earth Share (www.earthshare. org) is also a great resource for finding organizations and open employment positions (including internships) in communities throughout the country. GCJ: How many people does your organization employ? AH: Earth Force employs a team of 35 great individuals dedicated to engaging young people as active citizens who improve the environment and their communities now and in the future. GCJ: What is the salary range? AH: The average salary varies by position, experience, education, and geographic location. As a whole, we are proud to provide competitive salaries, great benefits, and an exciting work environment. GCJ: What organizations to do recommend becoming a member of and conferences to attend? AH: I would recommend finding out what is happening in your area, and attend as many meetings and conferences as you can. The North American Association for Environmental Education Conference is a great way to explore they myriad ways in which we accomplish environmental education in North America and around the world, but connecting to your community resources should be your first step. GCJ: What would you like to convey to future Environmental Educators? Advice, words of wisdom? AH: Earth Force has been very fortunate to have inherited the legacy of Dr. Bill Stapp, founder of the Global Rivers Environmental Education Network (GREEN). Dr. Stapp had a huge impact on environmental education during his lifetime, not only as an educator but also as an empowered and active citizen of the world. He wisely composed the following words of wisdom more than a decade ago and I can’t help but think how true they are today. continued next page

“The foundation for strong environmental action rests, to a large degree, on what happens in our home and schools. Today’s youth will soon be the citizens and voters whose decisions will affect not only the immediate environment in which they live, but also that of their nation and other regions of the world. They will make the choices and eventually cast their voices about transportation patterns, water distribution, housing developments, hazardous waste deposition, energy usage, and control of air and water pollution. Therefore it is imperative that our educational systems develop comprehensive environmental education programs so that our youth and adults will be more sensitive to their environment, better able to recognize environmental problems, more sophisticated in the utilization of problem solving skills essential to the solution of emerging environmental problems, and more inclined to participate in coping with these problems. People should understand the importance of relating ecological, economic, social, technological and political information when working toward the solution of environmental problems.”

PG: I came into environmental education through the back door so to speak. Thirty five years ago when I began my educational career I had my BA in Early Childhood and a MA in reading education. I also had a lifetime of experiences involving the natural world through my father, who was an avid environmentalist, though he had no official education or training. He believed strongly in the need to conserve our resources and often referred to the Native American culture and beliefs. I was involved in Girl Scouts and 4H as a school age child and learned many conservation skills in these programs. As my parents became more involved in Audubon, I was also drawn into that organization as a young adult. My father always had his nose in a National Geographic, or some other book about nature. I start with this introduction because I feel growing up this way had a major influence on where I am today. I have been the principal of a charter school that integrates the environment into every subject area. I saw the charter school movement as a way for me to create what I felt was a perfect learning environment, Learning Gate Community School. Before the founding of the charter school in 2000, Learning Gate was a small private school that served Technician - The Clark lab seeks one full-time research technician for fall 2006. We study plant community ecology and forest responses to global change. Our research sites are located in the Duke Forest and in the Southern Appalachians in western North Carolina. Research technicians will help with several ongoing projects to study forest responses to canopy gaps and herbivore exclusion, monitor environmental variability using a wireless sensor network, and explore fungal pathogen ecology. The position involves mainly field work, but also some laboratory analyses. Experience with field work and ecological research a plus, but not required. Start and end dates flexible, but preferably from September through December. Compensation is $9/hour. Housing and transportation will be provided for trips to the Appalachians. For more information or to apply, contact Michelle Hersh, mhh4@duke.edu. Please include in your message a resume and a brief description of your relevant experience. Close Date: Until Filled. Postdoctoral Fellow - The University of Hawaii at Manoa is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow to begin December 2006, renewable for 2 years, dependent on satisfactory performance and availability of funds.

2 year olds-3rd graders. The original school was on a 5 acre wooded setting that had a full working farm. The children were all very involved with the farm and my observations, experience, upbringing and education lead me to the belief that this hands on approach, with authentic learning taking place was the perfect fit for young children. As my teachers became more attuned to this sort of learning, we soon moved this curriculum into “the formal educational grades” K-3. Our children thrived. They were happy, self confident and looked forward to each and every day of school. The chance to get outside and learn about insects, snakes, flowers, animals, water, etc was motivation enough. Our first year of our charter school was very successful and the second year we blew the socks off of all other schools in our state in reading. Now that we were a “public” school we had to take the state assessment tests. Our 3rd grade students had the highest reading scores in the state. We still refuse to change our standards in order to teach to the test for our high scores yet we remain an “A” school and continue to have AYP with the NCLB act. We relocated to a 27 acre campus in year 3 and have continued to refine our curriculum. Our literature selections must be set in a fresh water, salt water or forest biome, thus making up the three biomes from which our school year revolves. Our curriculum has progressed to the point that we no longer have periods of subjects but address an entire Biome during a 9 or 12 week grading period. All of our teachers are encouraged to join as many environmental organizations as possible. We have even paid for many of them to attend sponsored events by those groups. Though we have been to many conferences on education and environmental education we have as yet to see a school that is as immersed in environmental education as we are. We have had to develop teacher and student planners that reflect our style. We are presently working on a way to get our curriculum out to other schools but with such a tight budget it has been difficult to find the time or money to do so. It is a huge commitment, but one that we feel we must make in order to preserve our children and our earth. We have implemented our “Seeds to Soup” program this year and all students are involved in our organic garden. We even raise the rabbits that contribute to our compost pile. Students compost at lunch and we are able in such a short time to have our “Rainbow Bar”

Infrastructure Improvement award. To address fundamental questions of terrestrial ecohydrology processes in Hawaii, measurements will be made in forests of contrasting vegetation structure (native species versus plantation trees versus invasive species) of tree xylem sapflow, stemflow, soil water availability and quality, and climate. These measurements will be used to determine the overall impacts of forest species composition on microclimate, on soil water availability and on groundwater recharge. The postdoctoral fellow will focus on measurement of plant processes, soil hydrologic processes and climate, as well as collaborating and coordinating with researchers at UH and state agencies who are developing a cross-cutting initiative in ecohydrology in Hawaii. Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in an appropriate field, from an accredited university. Experience in plant water relations and/or plant and soil ecohydrology, including theoretical background. Excellent communication skills. Field research experience. Ability to work both independently and collaboratively. Ability to work in remote and physically demanding environments. Valid driver’s license required. Desirable Qualifications: A demonstrated record of research publication. Experience with modeling plant, soil and/or watershed ecohydrological processes. Contact Information: Please send CV, contact information of three references, and a cover letter with a statement of research interests to Lawren Sack (LSack@hawaii.edu). Please send application

available one day a week supplied by our garden. Children choose from a selection of a variety of healthy items. It is important to us that our students become advocates for the environment, so they are all involved in community service projects. Rather than celebrate at the winter holidays with parties, our students spend that time giving back to our community in a myriad of different ways. We have very sophisticated projects such as propagating and planting sea grasses and working with a primate center, to simple projects that involve our youngest group of students ages 3 and 4. It was very interesting to see the book Last Child in the Woods become such a popular concept and it validated all that we have believed and been implementing for the past 30 years. Environmental programs continue to be cut but I am hoping that as our former students begin college they will demand coursework in environmental studies. We are beginning to see the fruits of our labor and commitment, when hybrid cars, solar energy, organic gardening are becoming viable options for the consumer. In 10 years I believe they will become the norm and all of those students who chose environmental careers will be sought after. I just hope that we have the foresight now to have enough environmentalists for our future. Our teachers all must be certified and those that have been trained in Project Learning Tree, Project Wet, and Project Wild or been associated with an environmental organization are top candidates. We often interview teachers, though, whose zest for life and learning alone, make them desirable candidates. Our teachers, as a whole do not leave us. Our fresh approach to education often awakens in our teachers the very reasons they became teachers. To see the perfect joy on children’s faces when they discover for themselves the wonder of nature lets our teachers know that what they do is worthwhile. We are always delighted to receive resumes from those teachers who are interested in working with our school and encourage those who inquire to check out our website first. GCJ

Soil Researcher - The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) invites applications for a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Research Opportunity entitled: “Development of an Index of Ecosystem Health in a Mineralized Area -- Metal-Rhizosphere Interaction.” This is research opportunity #17, as described in the USGS Mendenhall Program web page. The focus of the research is to extend the conventional definitions of soil health, and develop an indicator(s) for general forest and prairie ecosystem health that includes an assessment of the potentially toxic metals and metalloids such as Ag, As, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Se. The indicator(s) may be used by land management agencies, the mining industry, and the public to discriminate between natural weathering of mineralized terrane and the effects of mining on ecosystems. Common indicators of ecosystem health, such as primary production/ respiration (P/R ratios) and the ratio of microbial biomass C (and microbial diversity) to soil organic C (Cmic/Corg), could be examined. Redox speciation and toxicity of bioavailable metals and metalloids could also be studied, to assess their impact on the rhizosphere of rooted plants. We welcome research proposals that will use these or additional parameters in the development of an ecosystem health index. A number of speciation and related analytical techniques will be available to the researcher including ICP-MS, laser ablation ICP-MS, SEM, sequential partial extraction, HPLC/ atomic fluorescence, and chemoluminescence. Guidance is available for the researcher from advisors with expertise in soil geochemistry, plant physiology, rhizosphere microbial communities, analytical techniques, and mineral resources. The position will be located at the office of the USGS Minerals Resources Program, located on the campus of the University of Nevada-Reno, in Reno, NV, USA. Salary begins at the GS-12 level.
