Help the Nature Trust Harness the Power of Volunteerism!
Volunteer Coordinator Opportunity
The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is a small, highly effective land conservation charity, protecting Nova Scotia’s most outstanding natural areas through private land conservation. Our conservation impact, profile and potential have increased significantly in recent years, and we need to unleash the power of volunteers to maintain the momentum! We are looking for a Volunteer Coordinator who can build a dynamic and powerful new volunteer program for our organization and who can inspire and empower volunteers in helping us to deliver on the promise of “forever wild.”
To unleash the tremendous potential for volunteerism at the Nature Trust, we seek a passionate, enthusiastic and ambitious leader to create a dynamic and powerful new volunteer program. The program will provide enriching, meaningful, and valued opportunities for volunteers, and significantly leverage the impact and capacity of the Nature Trust through volunteer energy and talent.
The network of conservation lands entrusted to our care has grown exponentially over the past 10 years, to over 90 of Nova Scotia’s most ecologically important, and treasured natural areas, encompassing over 10,000 wild acres. More and more people are also out exploring and discovering our growing conservation lands network, so we need help in meeting our commitment to steward these ever-expanding and increasingly popular wild spaces. A major focus of our volunteer coordinator will be a new program to significantly grow our community of volunteer “Property Guardians” all across the province, to help care for and steward our lands, keeping them wild, forever.
Beyond on-the-ground nature conservation, a talented, trained and well-supported volunteer network will effectively support and enhance every aspect of our charity’s work, from providing scientific and protected areas expertise, to helping to organize education, outreach and special events and raising the critical funds needed to deliver on our land conservation mission.
If you are passionate about land conservation and you are a confident, results-oriented leader with a proven track record in inspiring volunteerism and managing powerful, impactful programs, then this is the job for you! We invite you to join our small but mighty team of professional and highly committed colleagues who work collaboratively toward shared goals. Every day, you’ll be rewarded by the inspiring volunteers you empower, and the tangible progress in protecting Nova Scotia’s unique natural legacy that the volunteer energy you harness makes possible.
