Responsibilities

This position will assist in implementation of Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway's vegetation management field program. Emphasis areas include invasive plant/noxious weed control, vegetation mapping, inventory and monitoring, as well as rangeland management and restoration activities. Invasive plant management techniques will include herbicide application using backpack sprayers, all-terrain vehicles and trucks with mounted spray equipment, and mechanical removal. The incumbent will operate as a member of the seasonal field staff, normally on a crew of ten to fifteen individuals, but also in smaller groups or alone at times, depending on program need and project objectives. Responsibilities will also include daily record keeping of invasive plant treatment data and field notes, data input, and the safe operation of trucks, trailers, and various other equipment.

The incumbent may also perform the following duties, as needed:

Ensure the park's rangeland fences are maintained and will occasionally construct new fence or remove old fence as needed.

Construct and remove temporary electric fence to meet land management objectives.

Assist revegetation crews with various restoration and revegetation projects.

Contribute to and assist with ongoing vegetation and rangeland research and monitoring.

Assist with irrigation of 1000 to 2000 acres of pasture utilized by cattle, bison, antelope, elk, and other animals. Irrigation water is supplied by approximately 12 miles of canal and numerous water delivery ditches.

Support Integrated Pest Management (IPM) activities such as pest exclusion, pesticide application, or building inspections.

Employees selected at the GS-04 and 05 levels will follow specific guidelines and instructions and completed work will be checked by crew leaders. GS-05 employees will at times be assigned more complex responsibilities requiring a higher level of knowledge and experience in the field of rangeland management and invasive plant control. Employees at the GS-06 and 07 levels will generally provide assistance and training to students, interns, volunteers and lower graded employees working in invasive plant and rangeland management. Employees hired at the GS-07 level will be tasked with project development and implementation, as well as oversight of lower graded field employees, requiring a greater level of cumulative experience, knowledge, and technical ability.

Physical Demands: Work is completed in the field with a considerable amount of driving, walking and carrying weight in excess of 40 pounds. Appointee must be capable of traveling long distances on foot in rugged terrain with a backpack sprayer. At times lifting heavy objects (50-70 pounds) may be required. Manual exotic plant control and irrigation duties involve physical effort that includes shoveling, raking, pulling, cutting, pounding, wading, moving heavy materials, bending, stooping, kneeling and working with hand, arm and back muscles. Work is performed in a broad range of temperatures and weather conditions, typical of the northern Rockies.

Work Conditions: Most control activity will occur in developed areas, or within 2 miles of park roads, however, work in riparian corridors, on backcountry trails, on lakeshores and islands requires longer hiking, traveling by 4-wheel drive vehicle, boat, or by ATV, and can present logistical challenges. Special safety precautions and the use of personal protective equipment will be required due to handling of herbicides or other chemicals. Hazardous conditions exist from working around spring flood waters, slippery ditch banks, operation of hand and power tools such as chainsaws, and operating farm type tractors and other equipment in steep, uneven, hazardous terrain.
