  2. Huron Pines is hiring for a Coastal Stewardship Coordinator. The Coastal Stewardship Coordinator will plan and implement habitat surveys and restoration projects, perform outreach to and communicate with local partners and landowners, convene meetings and coordinate volunteer stewardship events. They will facilitate, coordinate and complete tasks on behalf of the Huron Coastal Invasive Species Network (HC ISN), a collaboration of local, state and federal partners working together to address invasive species concerns, so partner collaboration is a fundamental component of this position. They will train to assume the responsibilities of HC ISN coordination including working with stakeholders to obtain permits, permissions and ensure compliance with laws and serve as the primary point of contact for private landowners. The successful applicant will be a self-starter and a confident communicator with a positive attitude who has the ability to problem solve and complete tasks independently. They are expected to participate in meetings, ecological management and assist with projects in other Huron Pines programs and geographies.

  5. Hi Lindsey. We use the FS 131 (I'm pretty sure) by Stihl and have had good luck with those, so I imagine the higher power ones will work even better. We've also had better luck with the forester/chainsaw style brush blades compared the the standard blades that it usually comes with. Not sure if that's an option you have when purchasing stuff through this grant but it might be worth considering if you're going after larger stuff like buckthorn, autumn olive, etc. Always exciting to get new equipment! Hope this is at least somewhat helpful for you.
  6. Hi Everyone, I got a grant to purchase a brush cutter for doing woody invasives removal. I wanted to see what others have and if they are happy with them. These are the ones I am looking at. https://www.stihlusa.com/products/trimmers-and-brushcutters/professional-trimmers/ https://www.stihlusa.com/products/trimmers-and-brushcutters/brushcutters-and-clearing-saws/

  20. Hi all, I have a little booklet made by the DEQ (from 2018 when they were still called the DEQ) called "Michigan Citizens' guide to invasive plant disposal" ( <-link to PDF) It's been pretty popular at booths, so I'm running low. I can't seem to find a way to order more online, anyone have ideas where I could pick up a box of these?
