The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas towards a future where birds thrive because Audubon is a powerful, diverse, and ever-growing force for conservation. Audubon has more than 700 staff working across the hemisphere and more than 1.5 million active supporters.
North America has lost three billion birds since 1970, and more than 500 bird species are at risk of extinction across Latin America and the Caribbean. Birds act as early warning systems about the health of our environment, and they tell us that birds – and our planet – are in crisis. Together as one Audubon, we are working to alter the course of climate change and habitat loss, leading to healthier bird populations and reversing current trends in biodiversity loss. We do this by implementing on-the-ground conservation, partnering with local communities, influencing public and corporate policy, and building community.
Audubon is committed to a culture of workplace excellence, where our talented and diverse staff are deeply engaged with a strong sense of belonging. The birds Audubon pledges to protect differ in color, size, behavior, geographical preference, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon brings new creativity, effectiveness, and leadership to our work throughout the hemisphere.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and the Blair Audubon Center is one of the National Audubon Society's premiere centers. Operating as part of the Audubon Florida state program, the Sanctuary unites visitor and education experiences with science-based conservation to understand, protect and restore habitats on its >13,000 acres and its regional and connected watershed and public lands corridors. Corkscrew is well served by seasoned staff who are experts in their fields and by a dedicated and talented pool of volunteers, including the Corkscrew Sustainability Board.
The Land Stewardship Technician will report to the Senior Resource Manager and will be primarily responsible for aiding in the implementation of an ecologically-sound land management plan. This will involve direct field work removing invasive exotics and native nuisance plants, assisting with prescribed burns, and coordinating with field crews or volunteers to assist with these primary tasks.
This full-time, 40-hrs per week position is based out of Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. The Land Stewardship Technician will work collaboratively with the Sanctuary’s Conservation Team (land stewardship and research), in addition to facilities staff and volunteers.
