The Minnesota Land Trust is a non-profit organization that works with private landowners to conserve Minnesota's natural lands and waters. To ensure the land is protected, the Land Trust must keep impeccable records of conversations with landowners, monitoring visits, and any changes to the land.
The volunteer office assistant will assist the Land Trust's stewardship and land protection programs manage records - both paper files and in our database. The office assistant will have the opportunity to dig deep into how the Land Trust functions, work independently and meaningfully, and help protect Minnesota's great places.
This is a great opportunity for those interested in property law, environmental law, the natural world, and environmental change on private lands. Those with experience with recordkeeping, databases, library science, or other office management tools are well positioned to help.
Volunteers should expect to commit for four hours per week for at least six months. Interested volunteers will be asked to send in a cover letter and resume. The Land Trust will invite candidates for informal interviews with Land Trust staff, after which one applicant will be selected.
