Nature Conservancy seeks Urban Habitat Network Project Manager

1/14/2016 - Mid-Atlantic or Northeast USA

Habitat Network is a new program to advance conservation actions  by bringing people together to restore the ecological function of residential landscapes.  This program will connect a growing network of landowners and residents to transform their own back yards, neighborhoods, and communities into ecologically functional and attractive landscapes. The  Habitat Network evolved from the merger of two programs, Cornell University’s Yard Map, an on-line citizen science tool for people to improve their own backyard habitat, and the Conservancy’s Habitat Network pilot on Martha’s Vineyard which helps people create attractive, ecologically appropriate habitat on residential properties.   The Urban Habitat Network will utilize and modify the Habitat Network  to educate and connect urban residents so they can create or enhance wildlife habitat in their backyards, schools, and neighborhoods.  Customization of the app to the urban environment will be achieved by designing and testing citizen-science based practices in three pilot cities and then use that field experience to guide, assist and motivate app users in other cities.  The Urban Habitat Network Project Manager will report to the Director of Forest Health and will develop goals and strategies with the Director of Forest Health and the Habitat Network Coordinator.  The Urban Habitat Network Project Manager will develop and implement outreach and education strategies to engage urban residents in our conservation programs. This is a two-year position and may be continued dependent on funding and program success.
