The Wild Bird Trust of BC (WBT) Board has identified a thriving ecosystem of members and volunteers as a key strategic priority on its journey to repair relations with Tsleil-Waututh, Coast Salish peoples and the land itself.
The Organizer plays a critical role in our ecosystem and is responsible for nurturing relationships and activating allies towards common purpose as we implement the strategic priorities.
This position is on site at Maplewood Flats in North Vancouver and is accessible by transit. Weekend and evening hours are required. 25 hours per week.
The lands and waters at Maplewood Flats have been occupied by S?lílw?ta? (Tsleil-Waututh) and Coast Salish People since time immemorial. Prior to settler contact and industrialization, the region featured contiguous mudflats across s?lilw??t (Burrard Inlet). Since 1993, the WBT has been managing the 126-hectare conservation area known as Maplewood Flats. Since 2017 the WBT board has been intentional in its work to decolonize conservation and in 2022 shifted governance to a majority local First Nations.
WBT provides wild birds and other species with habitat through ecological protection and restoration, and supports communities with education, culture, and reconciliation programs. Our work is land-based and place-based with a deep commitment to justice for Tsleil-Waututh, Indigenous peoples, and justice for the land. WBT is committed to a culturally-safe and harassment-free environment and workplace.
$25-$30/hour based on experience
