The Connecticut Forest and Park Association (CFPA) is a member-based, nonprofit conservation organization established in Connecticut in 1895. CFPA’s mission is to protect forests, parks, hiking trails, and open spaces for future generations by connecting people to the land.
The Land Conservation Director is responsible for implementing CFPA’s land conservation programs. This is a part time position, 20 hours (without benefits) with a negotiable weekly schedule.
Scope and Impact
The Land Conservation Director will provide both technical and administrative support to CFPA’s efforts to conserve Blue-blazed trails and priority forestlands. He/she will work closely with the Land Conservation Committee and CFPA staff while facilitating the active management of existing fee-owned forests and the documentation and monitoring of all conservation restrictions (CR). The Director, in cooperation with the Land Conservation Committee, will oversee the Association’s efforts to expand permanent protection of the Blue-blazed trails and priority forestlands. We anticipate that the person working in this role will have a passion for protecting and stewarding forests and trails and will significantly enhance CFPA’s capacity to do so.
