  • Maintaining processes, documentation, and tools to support effective land management 
  • Supporting teammates in managing programs, grants, and other initiatives to strengthen ties between people and place 

 We offer an annual starting salary of $52,200 with a generous compensation package and work environment that values communication, innovation, learning, and growth.   

Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

Like many conservation organizations, we are learning about and grappling with the legacy of white supremacy, racial exclusion and erasure, and colonialization that directly influenced who owns land in Vermont and benefits from that ownership.

For over a decade we have had an active, internal Power, Privilege and Equity Team devoted to exploring this legacy and the role of land trusts in perpetuating inequality.

Today, we continue that learning and apply it in our work. It extends to our partners and communities we serve, including the four Bands of the Abenaki with whom we have active relationships and projects, several farmers of color who are partners in owning land and operating farms, and partnering organizations who are working with us to establish a fund to expand access and ownership to historically marginalized and oppressed communities.
