Alluvion Biological Consulting provides solutions to environmental and natural resource management challenges. We employ a team of highly trained biologists, ecologists, and environmental scientists to offer a wide array of services.

At Alluvion, we place special emphasis on devoting personal attention to each project.

Applicants should have an academic background in biology or environmental science ( Bachelors degree at minimum), field experience, a general knowledge of California ecology, and experience in ecological consulting in California. Technical writing ability and good communication skills are a must. This position will sometimes require navigating rugged terrain safely and working alone in a variety of weather conditions. It may also require occasional overnight travel and weekend work.

Experience identifying plant and wildlife species in the field
A background in ecology or wildlife management and broad knowledge of the biology of Californias ecosystems
The ability to prepare or assist with preparing CEQA/NEPA documents, biological assessments, wildlife inventories, and or vegetation inventories
