We are presently recruiting for the following position:
The Stewardship Specialist, working alongside stewardship and other ALT staff, will report directly to the Conservation Manager. Supporting the enhancement of conservation values of conserved properties, she or he will be primarily responsible for management of ALT’s Conservation Easement Program and will also contribute to the upkeep and maintenance of ALT fee-owned lands. In this role, she or he will engage with conservation easement landowners, land managers, and partners of co-held easements, as well as monitor, analyze, and keep records for easement properties. She or he will draft conservation-easement follow-up reports, identify, analyze, and document violations, amendments, questions of discretionary consent (using photography and GIS when necessary), and work with legal counsel and stakeholders to determine course of action when required. Additionally, this role will be responsible for responding to requests for permission, tracking ownership transfers and working proactively with key ALT constituencies to foster a broader conservation and stewardship ethic. The Stewardship Specialist may also support supervision of seasonal stewardship staff and/or stewardship interns.
This position offers a tremendous opportunity for an entrepreneurial conservation professional to lead the next generation of landowner partnerships. The Stewardship Specialist will work directly with a growing staff team and work from ALT’s headquarters in the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks.
