Student-stewards are needed for 2013 season.

New York Sea Grant is looking for a few good college and graduate students to spend the 2013 summer outdoors as Launch Stewards at venues in Wayne, Cayuga, Oswego and Jefferson counties, including on Sodus Bay, Henderson Harbor, Oneida Lake, and the Salmon River Reservoir.

The student-stewards will provide public outreach to boaters on ways to minimize and prevent aquatic invasive species (AIS) in local waters. They will participate in educational outreach, watercraft inspection demonstrations, data collection, and reporting.

The stewards also write informational articles published by local media outlets, including the Oswego County Weeklies, Jefferson County Journal, and Lure of the Lake.

New York Sea Grant Coastal Community Development Specialist Mary Penney will supervise the Launch Stewards. Uniforms will be provided to help the public identify the Stewards and they will use a standardized protocol New York Sea Grant has helped develop for water steward programs statewide.

The full PDF announcement of the New York Sea Grant Launch Steward opportunity with position description and qualifications is online at www.seagrant.sunysb.edu/coastalcomm/pdfs/NYSGLaunchStewRecruit2013.pdf.

Applications will be accepted online at mp357@cornell.edu until positions are filled. For details, contact Mary Penney at New York Sea Grant, SUNY Oswego, 315-315-3042, mp357@cornell.edu.
