"Paddle for the Edge" Volunteers Needed             (Posted: 5-7-19)

Volunteers Needed for Paddle for the Edge 2019

Do you have a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard? The Barnegat Bay Partnership is looking for paddling enthusiasts to help collect valuable data about the condition of shorelines along the Barnegat Bay. With many miles of shoreline, their scientists can't do it alone - they need the help of volunteers like you!

First launched by the Barnegat Bay Partnership in 2015, "Paddle for the Edge" has become an annual event. So far, volunteers have collected more than 3,600 data points with their smartphones, while enjoying a great time out on the water. The data provides important information about the state of the bay's marshes and will help guide future research and restoration projects.

This summer's "Paddle for the Edge" event will take place from June 29 through July 21. Volunteer paddlers can spend just a few hours on the water anytime during these dates to record some basic information for this shoreline study.

Interested? The first step is to attend one of the following training sessions to learn how to collect the data: June 8 (10:00 a.m. to noon) at the Toms River Library; June 10 (6:00-8:00 p.m.) at the Lacey Library; June 11 (6:00-8:00 p.m.) at the Toms River Library; and June 15 (10:00 a.m. to noon) at the Tuckerton Seaport.

Research Assistant Posting             (Posted: 5-3-19)

Part-time paid Internship: Learning from recreation and stewardship opportunities in Dundee Island Park, Passaic, New Jersey.

Helping the residents of the New York / New Jersey Harbor Estuary realize the benefits of the Clean Water Act requires skilled and innovative professionals. A diverse set of stakeholders, aging infrastructure, complex ecology and changing climate are just some of the challenges posed by this unique urban environment. The New York - New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP), Hudson River Foundation, and the USDA Forest Service are working together on addressing some of these challenges by identifying the best tools for creating environmental stewardship within communities in this region.

Project Description: The study site is the waterfront area near Dundee Island Park along the Lower Passaic River in New Jersey. The Lower Passaic River, a 17 mile tidal stretch from Dundee Dam in Clifton, NJ, to Newark Bay, is one of the 19 Designated Urban Waters Locations part of the Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP). This partnership is made up of federal agencies and NGOs, including the New York - New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program, who collaboratively seek to reconnect urban communities, particularly those that are overburdened or economically distressed, with their waterways. As such, there is a heightened awareness around the need to engage communities regarding the use, meaning and potential stewardship of these urban waterways. Project interns will work with researchers from the Forest Service's NYC Urban Field Station and HEP to assess how waterfront park visitors are using the area for recreation and stewardship. The work will involve surveying participants on one Saturday in April and two Saturdays in June. It will also include additional site visits to the area to make field observations and to interview key stakeholders in the region. Interns will be responsible for inputting data in the project database and helping to write brief project summaries for incorporation into a larger report and potential publication. A second round of data collection will take place in the late summer / early fall. Research interns will be responsible for collecting this data from brief phone interviews.

Successful candidates will have excellent organizational, communication and writing skills. Candidates will be enthusiastic and willing to learn about the community surrounding Dundee Island Park and how to best reflect the impacts that fostering environmental stewardship can create on its Passaic residents.

Applicants are expected to have or be pursuing a degree in environmental science, urban planning, geography, sociology, urban studies, natural resource / parks management, environmental education or a related field and have some relevant work experience. This is a paid temporary position where interns will work as needed to carry out required tasks, including being able to attend events scheduled to take place on April 27th, June 1st and June 8th 2019, or their designated rain dates which will be later determined. Work on the project will extend in the fall of 2019 and require some additional time for supplemental data collection and writing. We anticipate research assistants to spend up to 160 intermittent hours (mix of on-site & off-site) over the eight months. Each research assistant will be compensated at a rate of $18/Hour and will receive payment after submitting in work hours on a bi-weekly basis.

If you are interested in this position, please send your resume by May 3, 2019 and a brief cover letter indicating availability to:

DEP Seeks Applicants for Hundreds of Seasonal Jobs at State Parks, Forests and Historic Sites             (Posted: 2-25-19)

DEP SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR HUNDREDS OF SEASONAL JOBS AT STATE PARKS, FORESTS AND HISTORIC SITES

Applications are being accepted for hundreds of peak-season jobs at New Jersey’s parks, forests and historic sites, the Department of Environmental Protection announced today.

Seasonal positions for lifeguards, nature and history educators, maintenance workers and visitor service assistants are available for those 16 years of age and older. The number and types of positions available varies by the recreation opportunities each park offers. Positions are available at 34 locations in 14 counties. Peak season is Memorial Day through Labor Day. Salary rates start at $10 per hour.

Some parks are hiring to fill positions April through October, particularly for posts that involve camping. The Park Service will work with applicants, such as students and teachers, whose availability may be limited to weekends during certain periods of the year.

“Seasonal positions serve important purposes, from ensuring that our guests enjoy their visits to providing learning experiences for staff as they showcase the best of New Jersey’s parks, forests and historic sites,” said Parks and Forestry Director Olivia Glenn. “We encourage the public to apply for positions and spend the warmer months in our great outdoors.”

In addition to lifeguarding and other seasonal positions, the State Park Service also seeks Trail Stewards for three state parks. These positions require applicants to be at least 18 years of age and able to hike strenuous distances daily. Applicants should be assertive and professional as they will handle intense crowds and educate visitors on the Leave No Trace concept and park regulations. Trail stewards must be able to work 40 hours a week, on shifts from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. or noon to 8:30 p.m.

Seasonal staff are required to work weekends and holidays because facilities are open seven days a week. Most jobs are outdoors.

Applicants for all positions are encouraged to check with the park office of their choice by Friday, March 1 about specific positions, scheduling and other job-related inquiries. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

Lifeguard positions are anticipated at 14 swimming areas across the state, such as Island Beach State Park in Ocean County, the Atsion Recreation Area at Wharton State Forest in Burlington County, and Spruce Run Recreation Area in Hunterdon County.

While candidates must pass running and swim tests prior to employment, prior experience is not necessary. The Park Service will train lifeguards in cardiopulmonary resuscitation/Automated External Defibrillators, first aid and other medical matters, and help applicants obtain U.S. Lifesaving Association certification. State swimming areas open Saturday, May 25.

Office workers and visitor service assistants help register campers, answer phone calls, provide recordkeeping, handle sales transactions, and do other customer service duties as required.

Nature and history educators work with park naturalists and historians at interpretive centers to educate visitors. Typical activities include giving tours, demonstrating or explaining a craft, and preparing materials. These positions may also be assigned specific projects by their supervisor.

General maintenance workers help to maintain grounds and buildings and remove litter. Seasonal visitor service workers provide information to visitors, report emergencies and perform visual inspections of facilities and grounds.

The New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry oversees some 50 state parks, forests, recreation areas, battlefields, historic sites and marinas that annually draw millions of visitors and are a key contributor to the state’s tourism economy.

To learn more about which locations are accepting applications or to apply for a specific position, visit www.nj.gov/dep/workinparks or your local park office. The lifeguard testing schedule is also posted at this link.
