MISSION: The mission of the Tri-State Steelheaders is to restore sustainable populations of native salmonids by enhancing habitat, providing public education, and promoting recreational angling for future generations.
BACKGROUND: Tri-State Steelheaders began as a sport fishing club in the mid-1960s and incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1989. In 2000, Tri-State Steelheaders joined Washington’s Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group (RFEG) program. Each of the 14 RFEGs in Washington State is working to implement on-the-ground salmon and steelhead enhancement projects and to conduct outreach and education programs in our respective service areas.
SUPERVISORY CONTROLS: The Project Manager works under the general supervision of the Executive Director. The position does not include any supervisory duties.
WORK SCHEDULE: The position is a full-time (32-40 hours/week), hourly, non-exempt position. Schedule is flexible with respect to days and time worked. Some weekend and evening hours are expected, such as for board meetings and special events. Long days can be associated with construction or other field work. Travel is typically local, with longer trips for training and development.
COMPENSATION & BENEFITS: Hourly pay ranges from $20-$32, DOQ. In addition to the position’s pay, Tri-State Steelheaders provides a monthly health care stipend, and a Simple IRA with a 3% matching contribution. The position accrues paid leave at 6.7 hours per month, with a maximum of 80 hours (increases to 120 hours after three years). Paid sick leave accrues at 1 hour per 40 hours worked, with no limit on accrual, and an annual carryover limit of 40 hours. Nine paid holidays are observed. Personal vehicle mileage is reimbursable at the federal mileage rate.
WORK ENVIRONMENT: Work is primarily performed in an office or other indoor setting during the typical work week. Some events and programs will occur outdoors. Project work (construction, planting) does occur outdoors, on-site, so the project manager must be able to perform outdoor work during precipitation or extremes of temperature, and will need the physical ability to walk on uneven terrain, in stream channels, and navigate stream banks. Work sites encompass southeast WA and northeast OR.
