Opportunity Overview:
We are looking for a volunteer to help process and hand out OSV permits this season. The OSV program is incredibly popular. Come join us to make sure this season is a success!

Each year, thousands of visitors enjoy the beauty of the beaches of the Islands with Oversand Vehicle (OSV) permits. These permits allow vehicles to explore acres of open space to find peaceful spots for fishing, nature viewing, beach exploration, swimming, or family adventures. Permits are required to ensure the health and safety of the animals and plants that are critical to the beach ecosystem.

This position is great for someone interested in learning and/or supporting the administrative side of property stewardship, meeting people, and being part of a team.

About The Trustees of Reservations

Location:

200 High Street, Boston, MA 02110, US

Mission Statement

The Trustees of Reservations preserve, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts.

Description

Who We Are

We are more than 100,000 people like you who love the outdoors, who love the distinctive charms of New England, and who believe in celebrating and protecting them, for everyone, forever.

Together with our neighbors, we protect the distinct character of our communities and inspire a commitment to our special places. Our passion is to share with everyone the irreplaceable natural and cultural treasures we care for.

What We Do

We enjoy and care for more than 100 special places - nearly 25,000 acres - all around Massachusetts. And we are actively building an extended family of friends and neighbors across the state that can help in their different ways.

What We Are Up Against

Through more than 100 years of hard work and high standards, The Trustees have built a sterling reputation and a stunning physical legacy.

Today, the places we care about are going fast, and the forces undermining them, including climate change, are moving faster. We need to tap the wellspring of people’s joy - in their communities, their heritage, and the natural world - and mobilize a whole new generation to care.
