Interested in land protection and conservation? Check out this opportunity at the Lake George Land Conservancy as a Steward Assistant!

https://media.licdn.com/mpr/mpr/jc/p/3/005/083/1d0/21ebaa8.pngThe Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has been working to protect the land within the Lake George watershed – from summit to shoreline – to preserve the world renowned water quality of this amazing lake. As a non-profit land trust our work depends on the generosity and passion of people who love Lake George and want it to remain as clean and beautiful as it is today for their children and future generations.

The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) Stewardship Assistants will work with and under guidance from the Land Protection and Stewardship Specialist to conduct the daily management and maintenance of LGLC’s preserves and properties. Together, the Stewardship Assistants will be responsible for maintaining and improving the hiking trails on LGLC preserves and properties, including erosion control, clearing brush and trail marking. Scouting and blazing new trails may also be required, as well as bridge and kiosk construction and installation. They will also monitor each of the properties for which LGLC holds conservation easements.

The Stewardship Assistants will interact with the public and communities within the watershed through person to person contact at LGLC preserves and public recreational venues. Assistance with leading public hikes and other outings will be required. Administrative days will be used for organizing,
documenting and reporting on field work, as well as the routine maintenance of tools and vehicles.
