The Sandy River Basin Watershed Council is excited to host a new AmeriCorps position, the Community Involvement Specialist. This member will engage populations in the lower Sandy River watershed to develop creative outreach strategies and inform local populations about ongoing river restoration activities. Specific target areas for this position will include Beaver Creek, the Sandy River Delta, and the communities of Gresham and Troutdale.
The Community Involvement Specialist will be supervised by SRBWC’s Community Stewardship Coordinator, Sara Ennis, and Roy Iwai with Multnomah County’s Water Quality Program. This full-time position will be split, with 80% of the time focused in the Sandy Basin, and 20% of the time spent on professional development and trainings through the host partner, Confluence Environmental Center.
