Temporary Land Stewardship Associate- Eastern Sierra Land Trust

0 Comment

As the Land Stewardship Associate, you will primarily work to support the stewardship of ESLT’s existing and new conservation properties. A significant amount of your time is spent conducting a broad range of land management activities on ranches, wetlands, sagebrush steppe, and forest properties. You assist the Land Stewardship Manager with stewardship responsibilities, such as creating and updating Baseline Documentation Reports, inspecting conservation easements, preserves, and deed restrictions, and organizing and overseeing volunteer groups.

As part of the ESLT team, you also assist with other aspects of community outreach, ESLT events, and special projects as necessary. This is a dynamic position that can be quite unpredictable from day to day due to weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances. The successful applicant must be both flexible and well-organized. This position reports to the Land Stewardship Manager and is based out of the ESLT office in Bishop, California. An upbeat attitude, attention to detail, organizational skills, teamwork, flexibility, and good judgment will be critical to success. In addition to working with our staff, you will also have frequent interaction with volunteers, landowners, and agency/community partners. The position will require a mix of office and administrative work, as well as substantial field work across the Eastern Sierra region of eastern California and western Nevada. During field days, you may be required to camp or overnight at a hotel in shared accommodation for up to a week at a time. You will supervise no staff, but may help plan and direct work groups, including volunteers.
