You must be planning to return to school in the fall.
You will be part of a team working out of our office in North Granville. You will undertake stream restoration work in order to reduce sediment run-off and restore fish passage. You will plant trees and shrubs that are sourced from local nurseries as part of a plan to increase wildlife diversity, reduce run-off, and help mitigate the effects of climate change.

You will use water monitoring equipment to undertake a water sampling and testing program, and perform riparian health assessments, electro-fishing and other surveys and activities.
