The Nature Conservancy is a global conservation organization dedicated to conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends in more than 70 countries, all 50 United States, and your backyard.

The beautiful southern rim of Lake Michigan contains some fantastic natural areas including the Indiana Dunes National and State Parks, as well as incredibly diverse state- and privately-owned remnants of dune and swale habitat. The oak savanna and wetlands located here harbor the greatest per acre species diversity anywhere in the state of Indiana.  The Nature Conservancy owns or helps manage more than 500 acres within this urban industrial area at the outskirts of Chicago.  Restoration efforts are geared toward helping delist the Grand Calumet River as an Area of Concern by reinstating beneficial uses related to wildlife and wildlife habitat.

The Indiana Chapter is seeking a Restoration Crew Leader to join the team that has been working to restore and maintain this beautiful landscape; as well as engage with the surrounding communities to reinvigorate the connection between people and nature.  The Restoration Crew Leader will participate in restoration efforts including the maintenance, management, development, and coordination of conservation programs.  They will lead work teams to meet the objectives of Conservation Strategic Plans, coordinate community support, and implement preserve management plans.  Work may include controlling invasive species; operating and maintaining tools and heavy equipment; monitoring wildlife; conducting preserve maintenance; identifying and monitoring native and non-native species; preparing sites for prescribed burns; and community outreach.

This is a full-time, hourly position based at the Southern Lake Michigan Rim Office in Merrillville, Indiana.  The compensation range begins at $43,600 and may be commensurate with experience.
