Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is a 13,000 acre natural habitat sanctuary with a 2.25 mile boardwalk and 10,000 square foot Blair Audubon Center open to the public 365 days a year (only closing due to natural disasters, such as hurricanes). In addition to the Center, there are 13 other buildings, including staff housing and a dormitory, guest cabin, workshops and water treatment systems. The Facilities Manager is responsible for maintaining all structures, buildings, vehicles, equipment, roads, trails, fences and land on the 13,000 acres of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. S/he directs maintenance and facility needs by soliciting, assessing and awarding bids with the approval of the Sanctuary Director, and supervising the implementation of capital improvement projects. Additionally, the Facilities Manager organizes and oversees all work projects in an efficient, safe and productive fashion that may involve volunteers, staff and sanctuary visitors, and is charged with supervising local staff with facility and maintenance responsibilities.
