Employment and Volunteer Opportunites
Seasonal Employment Opportunities
Each year, the Department of Science and Stewardship hires motivated, enthusiastic, self-reliant field assistants with strong wildlife biology and botany skills. This is a field-based position that includes rare species identification and habitat inventory, monitoring vegetation communities, and various wildlife monitoring and land management projects. Field assistants have the opportunity to gain experience in rare species conservation, land management-based research and applied ecological monitoring – working on a wide variety of different field work projects. These are full-time, seasonal positions beginning in mid-May and ending in mid-October.
We have completed hiring for our 2017 Seasonal Botany and Ecology Field Assistant positions and are no longer accepting applications. We will be posting seasonal job opportunities for the 2018 field season in mid-December 2017.
Our Science and Stewardship and Properties Maintenance Departments strive to effectively manage our conservation lands and provide public access opportunities for supporters and the general public. However, much of this important work takes a great deal of time and effort. We often request volunteer assistance for a number of projects, as described below:
All of our volunteer positions have been filled for the 2017 field season. However we still need help with “Weed Wednesday” invasive plant species removal projects at a number of locations across the island. If you are interested in helping out for a few hours on Wednesday mornings starting at 8:30 AM, please contact Karen Beattie (email@example.com) and we will add you to our volunteer email list!
