The Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC) has an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual with a minimum of 1-3 years of experience in land use and natural resources planning.
We are seeking a planning and outreach professional to support projects that address forest fragmentation and the loss of wildlife habitat and connectivity, which are important issues affecting the viability of forestlands and ecosystem functions in Vermont. The projects are collaborations between two of our programs: Forests & Wildlife and Sustainable Communities, and the conservation planner will work closely with the directors of both of these programs.
Other partners in this work include the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife, Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, Vermont’s regional planning commissions, and the partners of the Staying Connected Initiative.
This position is a temporary, one-year position, although an extension is possible depending upon funding. In addition, the position can be part time or full time depending on personal preference, qualifications, and available funding.
