Compensation: 40 hours per week at $20.00 - $23.00 per hour depending on experience
Contract Period: March 18, 2019 - October 31, 2019
The Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) is a dynamic land conservation charity with an impressive track record of growth. Our mission is caring for lands entrusted to us and helping others protect the land they love in the Kawarthas. We do this by accepting donations of ecologically-significant lands and/or interest in lands and by engaging the community in support of this work through gifts of time and money to ensure those lands are cared for, in perpetuity. Our successes have been achieved through the work of our dedicated and growing volunteers and donors, supported by our core staff.
The organization permanently protects over 4000 acres of land in the Kawarthas. We manage that land for ecological integrity and for the opportunity that it presents to engage the community in land conservation. We are also engaged in providing advice and support to private landowners who are interested in learning about the land they own, and ways to enhance its value to conservation.
In 2019 KLT will be responding to a number of land owners in the community that are interested in different options for voluntary conservation of thousands of acres of land. In order to process these requests KLT is hiring an individual experienced in conducting fieldwork for baseline inventories or other forms of ecological reporting.
Tasks and Responsibilities
The Land Conservation Technician will be responsible for leading the ecological inventory and reporting process on lands whose owners are interested in conservation. Their tasks and responsibilities will include:
Property Inventory and Research
Reporting and Administration
Professional Skills and Attributes
Desired Level of Education and Experience

KLT is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees. KLT staff will ensure that employees have the necessary training, certifications and qualifications to do the job (i.e. Boating Licence).
