Michaux State Forest is looking for an educational specialist to support the work our service foresters do in technical service provision with educational curriculum and program development, implementation, and evaluation. We are also hoping this person can take a lead role in helping us create several demonstration areas on the Michaux that can “model” creative forest tending practices appropriate for smaller woodlots and/or “backyard forests” to incidental forest visitors and for planned educational programming for critical private lands audiences and groups.

This person will also be working with our current EES and our recreation management staff to broadly use our state forest infrastructure and operational communication efforts to ensure Michaux forest stakeholders generally recognize that most forest land in PA is privately owned; and therefore, many of the regional quality of life and public ecosystem benefits that accrue from forested landscapes depend on the decisions made in the private lands context.
