TNC- Ohio Independent Preserve Stewards

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Nature Conservancy in Ohio

  • 2 people are interested

Independent Preserve Stewards provide support to the Preserves Manager by protecting and maintaining some of the most rare and wonderful flora and fauna in Ohio. Preserves must be well-maintained and free from problems such as litter, vandalism, and invasive species, both so that they can be a source of pride for the community and to protect rare plants and animals. Preserve Stewards may choose to focus on general maintenance activities such as picking up trash and/or helping with the ecological management of the preserve by removing invasive species. This position requires volunteers to collect and dispose of litter and debris from around the preserves and it may require working alongside TNC staff, other volunteers, or alone (once trained) to control invasive plant species. It may require lifting of some heavy objects, safe/proper use of herbicide, and hiking over unimproved ground. Preserve Stewards need to have the ability to communicate via email, text message, and occasionally via phone.

· What you can expect to work on: depending on your skills and interest you can expect to work outdoors on various projects such as manual removal of invasive plants, maintenance of public spaces/areas/trails, collecting seeds

· Region: Statewide at all TNC-Ohio Preserves

· Time commitment : Ideally, preserve stewards will visit preserves at least once a month, however any commitment of time is appreciated.

· Who would you report to: Angela Burke & Regional Preserve Manager

· Training required ?: YES. Training will be provided by TNC Staff on various projects/tasks. Valid driver’s license a plus.
