Land Trust or Preserve Managers

Overview

Land trust or preserve managers are part of private and federal efforts to preserve land or water from development; subdivision; pollution; overly heavy recreational, grazing, agricultural, or other use; or other human action. The management tasks of land trusts or preserves vary widely, from monitoring the site, inventorying species, or managing natural resources to specialized conservation and preservation work. Examples of the latter might include conducting controlled burns, re-creating lost or damaged ecosystems, and restoring native plants and animals.
