The Brad and Alys Smith Outdoor Economic Development Collaborative is currently accepting applications for an Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Manager.
About the Opportunity
The Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Manager (ORIM) will be a member of the Outdoor Economic Development Collaborative (OEDC) team and responsible for assisting WVU with implementing natural surface trail and other outdoor recreation infrastructure projects throughout West Virginia to advance the state’s outdoor economy. The projects will be a combination of local and throughout the state. Responsibilities will include assisting with project design and management, budgeting, inspections, construction, volunteer development & management, and trainings. The ORIM will report to and be mentored by the Coordinator of Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure. This is a full time 12-month exempt position based out of WVU’s Morgantown Campus but will work on projects throughout the state.
West Virginia has a wealth of natural outdoor resources, with abundant hiking and mountain bike trails, whitewater, fly-fishing, and rock-climbing. Morgantown is a great place to call home with a 48-mile Rail-Trail system, the Mon River Trails, won the 2020 Rail Trail Conservancy’s ‘Rail Trail Hall of Fame’ national award. The Monongahela River and Cheat Lake offer flatwater paddling; Mon River is a designated water trail, with recent investment in kayak launches throughout Morgantown. There are also over 23,000 acres of existing/potential public greenspace within 25 minutes’ drive of Morgantown, with over 100 miles of existing trails (see https://oedc.wvu.edu/resources/wv-recreation-numbers). With so many natural amenities within easy distances of Morgantown, WVU has been rated the top (large) college out of 9 states in the southeast and mid-Atlantic for outdoor adventure (Blue Ridge Magazine, 2021). Morgantown has accrued a long list of recognitions as an excellent place to live, to raise a family, or to retire (see https://www.morgantownwv.gov/240/Recognition).
