POSITION INFORMATION The Placer County Conservation Program (PCCP) currently has one vacancy for a Conservation Program Biologist. The PCCP is a County-proposed program designed to balance economic development and conservation by coordinating and streamlining the state and federal permitting process allowing local agencies to extend their programmatic permits to cover public and private projects. The proposed PCCP is a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) under the Federal Endangered Species Act and a Natural Community Conservation Plan (NCCP) under the California Natural Community Conservation Planning Act. As proposed, the PCCP would also include the County Aquatic Resources Program (CARP), providing permit coverage for impacts to streams, wetlands, and habitat regulated through local, state, and federal laws. The integration of wetlands and species permitting and landscape level conservation would distinguish the Program as a nationally unique model of natural resource management. In proposing this streamlined process, costs and uncertainties would be minimized while ensuring positive conservation outcomes for western Placer County. This position will support the PCCP Administrator and provide highly specialized professional support, including: • Conducting field work in our wetland and wildlife habitats, • Maintaining responsibility for habitat restoration management plans, • Monitoring the status of species and habitats, • Assisting with grant funding requests, and administering grant funded projects, • Reviewing permit applications and requiring avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures.

At that time, the position may be transferred out of County service to the JPA. If the transfer occurs, the successful candidate will be expected to continue employment with the JPA as the County position will be discontinued.
