We are seeking a Land Stewardship Program Associate to join our nationally accredited land trust. This full-time position is based out of our Greenville office, with the opportunity for remote work, and field work throughout Upstate SC.
May 8th, 2020
As we continue to adjust to this new normal, we can all appreciate the simplicity and wonders nature provides — gardens are growing, birds seem to be singing louder, buds are opening right before our eyes, and we are now able to again enjoy the Upstate’s waterways and trails. We are so fortunate to have such incredible outdoor areas in which to find solace, healing, exercise, and family fun.
Our team at Upstate Forever and our partners work to expand these natural areas throughout our region, protect farmland, and safeguard our water resources to make our communities stronger and more resilient. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve our communities in this way — and grateful to be able to continue this important work even as much of our world has paused.
Over the past two months, so much has happened:
I am so proud of what our team has accomplished in these unprecedented circumstances — and in pajamas, no less! If you are in a position to contribute to Upstate Forever at this time, your support will help our team continue this work to protect our region’s special places and unique character for future generations. And if you make a gift of at least $36 during the month of May, we will send you a limited edition Be the Upstate Nalgene water bottle or hand-printed tee to show our gratitude.
Lastly, if your inbox looks anything like mine, it has been filling up these past few weeks. We want to do our part not to contribute to your digital clutter, so we’ll be sharing the same conservation news and updates from here out on a bi-weekly basis instead of each Friday.
Take care and be well,
Andrea Cooper, Executive Director, Upstate Forever
