Description

~ The Nisqually Land Trust is an independent, private, nongovernmental organization incorporated in 1989 and federally recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in 1990. ~

Our mission is to acquire and manage critical lands to permanently benefit the water, wildlife, and people of the Nisqually River Watershed.

In August of 2013, we were awarded national accreditation by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, a mark of conservation excellence achieved by fewer than 20 percent of land trusts nationwide.

Our conservation priorities are guided primarily by the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan, developed and managed by the Nisqually River Council in response to a 1985 legislative directive, and by the Nisqually Chinook Salmon Recovery Plan and Nisqually Steelhead Recovery Plan, which are coordinated by the Nisqually Indian Tribe. All three plans rate protection of wildlife habitat a highest priority. The Nisqually Land Trust was formed with the recognition that the Nisqually Watershed needed a conservancy organization to accomplish many of the goals of these plans.

Position Overview

The Nisqually Land Trust seeks an energetic, motivated individual to serve as Volunteer Coordinator during the September 2019 – July 2020 AmeriCorps term.
