Big Sur Land Trust (BSLT) is seeking an experienced full-time Stewardship Project Manager with strong land management, organizational, and interpersonal skills. This manager will work to design and implement a portfolio of effective, efficient, and engaging projects that strengthen the ecological integrity of some of the most spectacular conserved landscapes of Monterey County, care for infrastructure, strengthen and build communities, and inspire a robust land ethic. The successful applicant will possess the technical, physical, and cooperative skill sets to achieve meaningful, tangible conservation outcomes on the ground both independently and in a team setting.

BSLT is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire love of land across generations, conservation of our unique Monterey County landscapes, and access to outdoor experiences for all. We see a future where natural landscapes, working lands, urban open spaces and healthy communities are cared for by people who share a love of nature and a deep appreciation for the richness of their diverse cultures. We are committed to a supportive, respectful work environment for a diverse professional staff.

The stewardship team is responsible for the long-term management of over 4,000 acres of diverse land holdings including redwood and tanoak forests, coastal scrub, grasslands, riparian zones, oak woodlands, Monterey Bay dunes, working ranches, urban open space, and much more! We also monitor and promote sustainable stewardship on 35 conservation easements where we have partnered with private landowners to protect an additional 7,000 acres throughout Monterey County. Our approach is to understand the ecological and cultural resources present on the land and work to collaboratively monitor, manage, restore, and enhance those values. Engaging in stewardship is a dynamic process that requires dedication, on-going learning and taking the long view so that people, wildlife, and plant communities thrive.
