Below my signature please find an announcement for the Youth Education coordinator at Hobcaw Barony. Hobcaw is a unique place, one location that houses three different field stations: Clemson (Forestry/Wildlife/Water/Natural Resources), the Univ of South Carolina (Marine), and Francis Marion/Coastal Carolina (cultural, historical, and anthropological resources). Education programs are mainly run through the Belle W. Baruch Foundation, a non-profit trust set up upon the death of our namesake in 1964. This position is with the Baruch Foundation. Hobcaw Barony comprises 16,000 acres of coastal salt march, pine forest, bottomland hardwoods. It is located just outside of Georgetown SC, about 40 min south of Myrtle Beach. The location is not particularly rural, but has a small town feel near a major tourist destination.
Application details below. Note that it includes benefits. I have no part in the hiring process, since this isn’t a Clemson position. Passing it along because I bet there are many talented folks within the Ecolog community looking for a new challenge. Cheers Skip J.
