The Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District is accepting applications for the position of Soil Conservation Technician. Funding for this position was secured under a grant to assist the local Natural Resource Conservation Service office, located in Susanville, with their Farm Bill programs. Therefore, this is a one-year, full-time position that may be extended to additional years if additional grant funding is secured. This “at will” position includes paid leave and is supervised by the HLVRCD district manager.
The Soil Conservation Technician provides assistance to landowners and the Natural Resource Conservation Service to implement the NRCS’s Conservation Stewardship Program. The CSP is a voluntary cost-share program for landowners to improve conservation practices on private and other working land.
