Stewardship Programs Manager – Wilton Land Trust


The Wilton Land Trust seeks a part-time Open Space Stewardship Programs Manager. The primary responsibilities are three-fold: (1) to maintain, steward, and help monitor its 840-acre portfolio and trail networks, (2) to oversee and grow the intern program, and (3) administratively support the Executive Director. This position reports directly to the Executive Director and involves working independently, managing interns, and sometimes directing volunteers. This is a field-based position, with approximately 80% of the work in an outdoor environment where the climate, weather, and terrain can be demanding. Fieldwork, hiking, photography, supervising, and report writing are required for this position.

This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and conservation-minded college student, professional, or retiree. A background in botany, biology, soils, conservation, ecology, forestry, natural resource management, or a closely related field is preferred. Candidates should be passionate about preserving the natural environment, protecting open space, environmental education, and ensuring the safety of WLT visitors.
