Help develop an ecological restoration project on campus!

We are seeking students to take leadership roles in an exciting new ecological restoration project on campus!

UW Alumnus Justin Hellier is working with Grounds Management, faculty members, EarthCorps and others to explore the potential of restoring Kincaid Ravine, a forested part of campus just south of 45th, between McCarty Hall and the Burke Gilman Trail. Right now, we are developing a proposal for funding to the Campus Sustainability Fund.

We are seeking one or more students to take part in this effort. Specifically, we are looking for a student to support developing the grant proposal, collaborating with academic units, UW staff, and community partners, and being a part of the team that plans and implements the restoration.

This is a great opportunity for a graduate student looking for an applied thesis project, or an undergraduate student seeking a really exciting capstone. You’ll learn skills in grant writing and project development, community outreach, and restoration planning and implementation.

While the work would be in a volunteer capacity for now, there is the possibility that a student project manager could earn a stipend for the work in the 2013-2014 school year.

If you are interested, please contact Justin Hellier at justin.
