The Lancaster Conservancy is seeking an outgoing individual with enthusiasm for physical labor and the great outdoors to work as part of a seasonal land stewardship crew. While not required, we will favor candidates with some experience in equipment operation and transport, use of power-tools, and use of hand-tools. Seasonal Land Stewards will work on a crew, under the direction of a Full Time Land Steward, to implement a variety of conservation projects at local nature preserves including trail work and habitat restoration. 40 hours per week is not guaranteed in event of inclement weather but efforts will be made to accommodate safe and/or indoor work during short periods of such weather events; and therefore, this is a field-based position, but some shop or office work may also be required.

This is a seasonal, hourly, non-exempt position with an anticipated start date of Monday, May 22, 2023 and an anticipated end date of Friday, August 11, 2023.

Candidates must be of 18 years or older.
