The Department of State Lands (DSL) is the administrative arm of the State Land Board. The agency’s mission is to ensure a legacy for Oregonians and their public schools through sound stewardship of lands, wetlands, waterways, unclaimed property, estates and the Common School Fund.
DSL manages real estate properties and their mineral and natural resources to generate revenue for the Common School Fund. The agency also manages navigable waterways, including rivers, lakes, estuaries and the territorial sea, for public use. DSL administers Oregon’s Removal-Fill Law and wetlands management program, and the state’s unclaimed property and estates programs. All agency revenues are deposited in the state’s Common School Fund, which provides earnings distributions to Oregon school districts twice a year.
The SSNERR was established in 1974 pursuant to an agreement between the State of Oregon and the US Department of Commerce’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resources Management. The Reserve is a special research natural area that encompasses approximately 5,000 acres in the southern portion of the Coos estuary. The site was selected to represent estuaries and coastal watersheds found within a broad region covering approximately 1,000 miles of the Pacific Northwest coastal zone. The Reserve provides a location and facilities for SSNERR researchers, visiting scientists and members of the public to conduct research and monitoring activities designed to improve understanding of the estuaries and coastal watersheds found in this region. The Reserve also provides a wide array of educational science programs and opportunities ranging from a visitor center equipped with interpretive exhibits, aquaria and multi-media displays, to personalized programs led by both professional and volunteer naturalists, to formal school curricula designed for use in classroom and in the field. A full description of the goals and objectives of the Reserve are contained in a management plan prepared by SSNERR staff for the SSNERR management commission, a nine member board appointed by the Governor to carry out the mission of the Reserve as outlined by the Oregon state legislature.
Cottonwood Canyon State Park, a unit of Oregon State Parks, in central Oregon is looking for a six month seasonal Ranger 1 from April 1st to Oct. 31.
This isn't the "normal" state park seasonal job. We are looking for someone with a large amount of flexibility who can be self-starting; work independently and still have fun.
