0 Comment


Since 1998, the Shasta Land Trust (SLT) has led efforts to identify and conserve significant lands in the north state that provide open space, wildlife habitat, scenic views, recreation, and working agriculture to the surrounding communities. SLT is an accredited land trust with 501(c)(3) non-profit status that holds conservation easements on more than 30,000 acres across Shasta County. With a growing portfolio of projects, we anticipate growing our conservation efforts to over 60,000 acres in the next two years. We are seeking a motivated candidate who is excited to join a growing organization.


The Conservation Projects Manager is responsible for developing and managing land protection projects of the Shasta Land Trust (SLT). Tasks include assessing the conservation merits of identified properties, applying for grants needed in the purchasing of conservation easements, assisting with the negotiations and drafting of conservation easements and associated agreements, reviewing baseline documentation, conducting appropriate record-keeping, and managing other tasks essential to completing conservation easement transactions. Additional tasks include stewardship of SLT conservation properties. The Conservation and Stewardship Manager works closely with the Stewardship Director, as well as with landowners and our project partners, including municipal governments, public agencies, conservation organizations, and participates in ongoing collaborative planning efforts across the region. In addition, the Conservation Projects Manager will represent the Shasta Land Trust in various public settings and participate in community engagement, stewardship activities and fundraising activities. The Conservation Projects Manager reports to the Stewardship Director and does not supervise other staff. However, he/she may manage sub-contractors, partners, and volunteers.
