     University of Nevada Cooperative Extension in Social Horticulture.
     Deadline is May 31. The position announcement follows this
     information. It is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a rapidly
     growing population approaching 1.4 million people. The community is
     very supportive of this position. The position has two staff
     associated with it and a good budget. Salary and benefits are very
     competitive. The position has tremendous flexibility and freedom since
     it is a new position. It has a very active Master Gardener program,
     community gardens that are in need of university and volunteer
     assistance and excited teachers at the school district. We have strong
     consumer educational programming in natural pest control and the use
     of alternative methods for controlling pests. Our programming is also
     strong in sustainable desert urban landscapes. This position is ready
     to take off with tremendous impact with the right person. Our
     horticulture program has been emphasizing natural and biological
     control measures for over five years. We are currently involved in
     research with recycled water and biosolids. This is a great
     opportunity for the right person.
