Conservation Land Analyst

Company Background
Magnolia Land Partner is a conservation banking company. We earn environmental credits by restoring and protecting critical habitats and natural resources across the United States. Our clients use these credits to offset their environmental impacts, a process known as environmental mitigation. We’re fortunate to include among our
partners all the largest renewable energy developers in the US, many state departments of transportation, and the US Department of Agriculture. This is a new model for conservation—one that doesn’t rely on public grants or private philanthropy and that marries the needs for economic development with environmental stewardship. We’ve conserved over 12,000 acres over the past five years.
