Careers at Conservation Foundation
We are a dedicated team of professionals with a passion for working hard to save natural lands, forever. Founded in 2003, Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast has protected 11,370 acres across 40 properties. That's more than 17 square miles of natural lands protecting our waterways, providing critical habitat for animals and plant survival, and giving us natural space to explore, experience and enjoy.
Our powerful team of a dozen is agile and strategic, working together to grow our conservation community and develop creative solutions to saving the most important natural lands across five counties - Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Lee, and Collier.
The job provides (and requires) on-site housing in lieu of pay, for 2 days per week of work. Days are flexible; but a minimum of one weekday is required. The full description is here (see “Green Cottage Resident”). In addition to property management duties, the position is also the site manager for our weddings and events. Duties included in the site manager role are compensated at an additional hourly rate. In 2018 there were 11 weddings at Bay Preserve.
The Green Cottage is a 3 bed/1.5 bath historic bungalow built in 1905 located on a four-acre bayfront park in Osprey.
The ideal candidate will be conservation-minded and personable, with an interest in land management, biology or horticulture.
