0 Comment
Are you an accomplished land conservation professional who wants to make a lasting impact with your work at the landscape scale? Are you a successful, detail-oriented manager, skilled at managing conservation easement and fee forestland acquisitions?


The right candidate is adept at organizing conservation projects from inception to closing.  They love natural forest landscapes, and also see the importance of sustaining working forests with wild qualities. They are nimble, resourceful, and have a knack for working with landowners and agency and community stakeholders.


This position plays a central role in managing PFT’s conservation easement and fee title acquisition projects from initial reconnaissance to development of legal terms through closing. This includes the negotiation, due diligence, title review, appraisal, grant writing and all the details of final acquisition of working forest conservation easements and forest properties in fee. Our projects, primarily located in California and Oregon, are often large-scale and complex, with public and private partners. This position provides overall project management consistent with PFT’s policies and procedures as an Accredited Land Trust and publicly supported charity – and with our commitment to the highest ethical standards. This is a full-time position, offering a competitive salary and benefits package.
