The Arroyo Seco Foundation, which operates Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery in Pasadena, seeks an individual who is skilled in or eager to learn about nursery management, including native plant identification and propagation, nursery operations, and customer service. The nursery grows native plants from the Arroyo Seco for habitat restoration programs and for water conserving gardens at homes, businesses and public places. The nursery sells to public agencies and to the general public.

This is an ideal opportunity for an environmentally-oriented individual to work to protect and preserve the environment and to develop important stewardship skills. The position includes managing significant parts o the nursery operation and may lead to employment. Hahamongna Nursery relies on community-oriented volunteers for much of its work. We are looking for energetic individuals to work as part of a team to grow a wide variety of native plants and educate the general public about the importance of native plants and habitat for wildlife and for a resilient future.

The Arroyo Seco Foundation is an action-oriented environmental group that works for nature protection and stream restoration. As part of the LA River restoration program, ASF is to bring native fish back to the Arroyo Seco and to promote conservation and environmental stewardship. Hahamongna Nursery is a key educational tool and community service.

Please provide a statement of interest and qualifications, including any relevant background, studies or activities.
