Hours of Work:
Friends of Sausal Creek (FOSC) is a volunteer-based, nonprofit, community organization dedicated to promoting awareness, appreciation, and stewardship of Oakland’s Sausal Creek Watershed. In addition to hands-on habitat restoration work, we educate local youth, involve the community in local environmental stewardship, and collaborate with agencies and other nonprofits to have a positive impact on the local ecosystem.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, hardworking team member who is interested in learning the ropes at a small nonprofit and stepping into a leadership role. The education and outreach coordinator (EOC) is responsible for leading all of FOSC’s environmental education programs as well as serving as the lead on outreach for all our programs—education, restoration, and monitoring. The EOC is responsible for tracking field trips and community outreach data, contributing to grant reporting, and assisting with grant writing and other fundraising. Given the uncertainty and changes due to the pandemic, the timing of some task will vary and require creative thinking and flexibility.
Environmental Education: The EOC will lead FOSC’s environmental education program, which encourages local youth to be environmental stewards. Through hands-on experiences, student learn about the physical and ecological connection of the creek and surrounding urban areas. Most of the education tasks will be delayed until schools have reopened and teacher are ready for field trips (tentatively early 2021). The EOC will:
• Launch new school partnerships and maintain existing relationships; coordinate with teachers and volunteer docents; and develop/update curriculum (environmental, cultural, and natural history).
• Plan for and lead environmental classroom lessons and experiential field trips in urban and wild areas in the Sausal Creek Watershed with K-12 students (ages 6-18). Activities include classroom presentations and field trips on watershed ecology, mapping and art projects, tool and project safety, native plant gardening in urban parks, bird watching, aquatic insect monitoring, water quality testing, and removing invasive, nonnative species and planting natives in Oakland wildlands to support habitat restoration projects.
• Continue the expansion of FOSC’s estuary-based field trip programs for schools located in the Fruitvale district, close to the creek outlet.
• Lead summer education and restoration programs for Team Oakland job training crews (ages 15-24) and Oakland Parks, Recreation, and Youth Development summer campers (6-12 year olds).
• Implement program evaluation, coordinate school waivers, and complete administrative tracking.
Organization Outreach and Communication: Organization outreach engages the community in workdays and bimonthly environmental education presentations, and provides community leadership to develop and implement urban greening projects. The EOC is charged with keeping the community informed about watershed issues and opportunities through a variety of methods. The EOC will:
• Publish a monthly email newsletter and regular posting via social media outlets, as well as coordinating speakers and/or activities (e.g. film screening, book club) for the bimonthly meetings (virtual at this time).
• Take the lead for the organization as an outreach partner for the Bay Area Integrated Regional Water Management Disadvantaged Community Involvement Program. The focus of this program is to engage Fruitvale community members and organizations to collect information on water challenges and needs, with the goal of implementing future projects.
• Attend local community meetings and events and work with program partners throughout the region. Represent FOSC at outreach and tabling events (e.g. neighborhood festivals) when they resume.
• Develop new partnerships and expand existing ones as part of implementing FOSC’s Sausal Creek Walkable Watershed Concept Plan, which seeks to transform the creek from a state of obscurity to a community asset.
Reports and Fund Development Assistance: The EOC contributes to ongoing fund development activities including donor campaigns and grant applications. The EOC will:
• Research potential grants, contracts, and funding opportunities.
• Draft grant proposals.
• Implement evaluation, collect and analyze data, and generate funder reports.
