Partnering with federal and state agencies throughout the state of Nevada, provides training, work experience, and opportunities for environmental education to diverse youth across the state through conservation projects.

These tasks include the following: survey, document, assess, report, propagate, collect, clean and prepare for storage native plant seed for restoration projects throughout southern Nevada and northeastern Arizona. Work will include surveying and accessing suitable native plant populations by vehicle or on foot; identification of native and non-native plants; care (including planting, weeding, and irrigation) for native plant seed increase fields; determine seed ripeness and viability; determine proper harvest, collection, cleaning and storage methods; and proper documentation of all accessions. The RA will perform all data management including GIS, Access, and photo data for all collections and the seed storage facility.
