The East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) is offering an exciting career opportunity for a dedicated land conservation professional to lead the Land Legacy Program. The Program protects working lands, natural areas, and nature-based recreational lands through conservation easements and fee purchases. Land purchases are made directly by EMSWCD or by partners. This position will work closely with other EMSWCD staff, board members and partner organizations to lead the acquisition process, including: identifying potential projects and properties for protection, undertaking outreach to landowners, negotiating fee purchases and conservation easements, and facilitating property transactions.
This position is located at the main office, but will require frequent travel to offices of partner organizations and private properties. If site visits are required, the work may require walking long distances across sloped, uneven terrain, sometimes in inclement weather. Supervision is provided by the EMSWCD Conservation Legacy Program Supervisor.
EMSWCD values diversity and equity within our organization. We strive to hire a workforce representative of the communities we serve, and encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply.
