Indiana Dunes Native Plant Team Project Leader


The Student Conservation Association (SCA), America’s #1 conservation service organization seeks 2 qualified applicants to lead, educate, and inspire young adults at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

For a decade, SCA has partnered with Indiana Dunes to run conservation corps teams throughout the National Lakeshore.  This summer SCA will be fielding a 5 person team to work throughout the park on restoration projects, using a variety of methods including but not limited to: planting native plants, collecting seed, applying herbicide, removing shrubs and trees, monitoring and recording planting data, and invasive plant removal, community outreach and education activities.  The team will have the opportunity to work with other park staff on special projects as they arise.

The crew itself will be made up of young adults (18-25) local to the area, who will be commuting to and from the National Lakeshore each day.
