    Responsibilities

    The wetlands biologist serves as the project manager for wetlands monitoring, which includes responsibility for accurate plant ID, collection of water quality/hydrology data, and coordination of a volunteer effort to monitor hydrology in selected wetlands. The biologist will independently report on these data in NPS scientific literature and peer-reviewed articles. The biologist also oversees invasive plant monitoring, as well as any future work that the network undertakes in the park. To complete this work, the biologist will supervise 1 to 2 seasonal biological technicians annually and will likely be required to interact with contract biologists to obtain high-quality monitoring information. The wetlands biologist already organizes 20+ volunteers/citizen scientists to assist with water depth monitoring in wetlands. Finally, the duties also include consulting on wetland determination, conservation, restoration, and mitigation issues within Cuyahoga Valley National Park. In this capacity, the wetlands biologist is considered a subject matter expert regarding the protection of 1,700+ wetlands within the park.

    The wetlands biologist also serves as the official representative of the HTLN with a duty station at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This role is critical given the wide geographic extent of the network. In this capacity, the biologist is required to work with CUVA personnel to fulfill hiring, procurement, and other administrative functions. In this respect, the position plays a key role in negotiating the relationship between the park and the network.
