JOB ANNOUNCEMENT: Ecological Educator, Institute for Applied Ecology
The Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to conserve native species and habitats through restoration, research and education. Our Southwest Program works in New Mexico and Arizona. We cultivate partnerships to facilitate large-scale, regional conservation projects, develop ecologically appropriate sources of native seed, provide native species education opportunities and materials, and conduct on-the-ground habitat restoration and applied research. IAE Southwest Program seeks to hire an Albuquerque-based Ecological Educator that will work with our Santa Fe office education staff to deliver the 2018 Forest Bound summer program (https://appliedeco.org/forest-bound-launches/ ). The Forest Bound program utilizes place-based, interdisciplinary lessons from the native plant curriculum “From Ponderosa to Prickly Pear, Exploring the Native Plants of New Mexico” (https://appliedeco.org/programs/education/about-projectbotany/project-botany-new-mexico/). The goal of Forest Bound is to provide an opportunity for Santa Fe and Albuquerque high school students to learn about careers in natural resources and gain skills in native plant ecology in an experiential learning setting.

San Francisco Watershed Stewardship Curriculum
From 2009 to 2010, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) funded the design and installation of five rainwater harvesting systems in elementary schools in the San Francisco Unified School District. Each project installed a tank to capture rainwater, removed paved surfaces from the schoolyard to make room for a garden and let rainwater soak into the ground, and used native and edible plants to be irrigated by the on-site rainwater harvesting system. The projects achieve multiple goals: they raise watershed awareness, green the city’s public schools, and keep stormwater out of San Francisco’s combined sewer system. To help schools use rainwater harvesting systems as educational tools, the SFPUC partnered with the San Francisco Green Schoolyard Alliance and funded a Watershed Stewardship Curriculum. The lessons pertain to watershed awareness, green stormwater management, pollution awareness and prevention, and water conservation. All schools in San Francisco that replace schoolyard asphalt with permeable garden space and harvest rainwater for irrigation will find these lessons useful in connecting students to their watersheds. Lessons in this binder can be adapted for kindergarten through 6th grade, and beyond. Download the curriculum and put it to work in your school!
