Stewardship Coordinator – Northern California Regional Land Trust

0 Comment

The Stewardship Coordinator directly supports the Executive Director and the Deputy Director for Conservation and is responsible for monitoring and stewardship of NCRLT’s preserves (lands owned in fee title) as well as conservation easements. This stewardship role is the primary point of contact for conservation easement landowners, and plays a critical role in representing the Land Trust with tact, professionalism, and discretion at all times. The Stewardship Coordinator is expected to initiate, organize, and complete annual land monitoring activities with minimal oversight; to serve as a resource to connect conservation easement landowners with funding and technical assistance opportunities that may support their ongoing stewardship or innovative management of conservation easement properties; and to cultivate a strong rapport of trust and mutual respect with current and prospective landowner-partners, current and prospective funding agencies, and members of the public in communities served by NCRLT.

The preferred deadline/first review date for applications is October 25, 2021.

THE ORGANIZATION: The Northern California Regional Land Trust (NCRLT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists landowners and public agencies in the voluntary protection and conservation of agricultural land, open space, wildlife habitat, and other natural resources. Working across Butte, Glenn, and Tehama County, NCRLT is dedicated to responsibly stewarding natural landscapes and the region’s deeply rooted farming and ranching heritage for generations to come. To advance its mission, the NCRLT negotiates conservation easements, facilitates land acquisitions or exchanges, and provides professional planning and technical assistance in natural resource management and conservation. The NCRLT also supports environmental education for people of all ages, hosts events that bring the community together to celebrate land, and works to increase public access to wild nature and to outdoor recreation opportunities in the region. NCRLT’s service area stretches from the western slopes of the Sierra-Cascade Crest, across the Sacramento River Valley, to the eastern slopes of the North Coast Range. Within this approximately 6,000 square mile region, the NCRLT prioritizes the conservation of farms, ranches, and open space important to the region’s economic wellbeing, ecological health, and quality of life.
