21-22 Lummi Island Heritage Trust Stewardship Member
Lummi Island Heritage Trust (LIHT) is an accredited land trust serving the local community by conserving and caring for the valuable natural areas, native habitats, and open space on this beautiful island. Located a short ferry ride from near Bellingham, the small, rural community is full of lush forests, vibrant wetlands, rocky shorelines, and intimate farms. We strive to protect these critical habitats, restore damaged lands, and educate the public about the incredible nature that surrounds us so that future generations can enjoy and thrive in a healthy environment. In order to properly protect this treasured landscape, LIHT is responsible for the ongoing care and maintenance of the land. The Service Member will be an integral part of our small team, providing on-the-ground service of protected lands. This position will be responsible for implementing appropriate ecological management projects across our four nature preserves. Another aspect of this position will be to engage, inspire, train, celebrate, and supervise volunteers to assist with stewardship tasks. This includes coordinating work parties, recognizing volunteers, and tracking data records. LIHT will ensure the Service Member receives a well-rounded term of service gaining experience in all aspects of nature preserve management, and an extensive introduction to non-profit land trust organizations. LIHT will conduct interviews beginning in June.
