Land Stewardship Coordinator (TerraCorps-Americorps)
Land Stewardship Coordinators (LSC) Build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by creating
networks of volunteers to support hands-on stewardship of community lands. They organize, train, and
collaborate with municipal boards, neighborhood and civic associations, community members, youth
groups, and schools to care for, improve access to, and support the long-term resiliency and sustainable
use of community lands. By providing training and organizing collaborative land-focused projects, they
increase resources for community projects, demonstrate environmentally responsible land
management, help individuals build skills, and nurture an inclusive sense of public ownership in the local
landscape. LSCs generally spend roughly 60% of their time in the office and 40% in the field.
TerraCorps Members engage with their supervisors to develop and carry out three or more capacity
building projects over the course of the service year. Some of these projects will involve recruiting,
training, and/or managing community volunteers.
The Trustees of Reservations has proposed the following potential project(s) for their Land Stewardship Coordinator:
1) Volunteer Steward Program (grassland nesting bird monitoring program) – enhance and expand
the program by coordinating trainings, outings, and service days. This program supports our
management activities at our farms to support both biological diversity and agricultural
production through grazing livestock.
2) Volunteer Steward Program (general biological monitoring and restoration projects) – enhance
and expand the program by coordinating trainings, outings and service days. This includes
building the use of iNaturalist projects to document the biodiversity of our properties.
3) Develop materials to share the work of the Coast and Natural Resources program including blog
posts, social media, and on-site signage in collaboration with Trustees marketing team.
