Habitat Restoration Resources, Inc. is hiring up to 25 local laborers to clear vegetation to improve Scrub Jay habitat on approximately 1,900 acres of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
This contract was awarded to Habitat Restoration Resources, Inc., as part of the federal stimulus funds program to increase employment opportunities.
