Asset Management Intern
The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy is the world’s largest non-profit conservation organization, working in all 50 states in the U.S. and in over 35 countries worldwide with a mission to “conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.” In Colorado, TNC owns over 120,000 acres of preserves for the protection of habitat and ecological diversity and holds conservation easements on over 475,000 acres of private lands. In order to protect these places, The Nature Conservancy must visit each property annually to document the condition, develop and maintain relationships with landowners, and ensure an ongoing commitment to the easement agreements and management plans.
The Asset Management Intern will work with members of the Asset Management team as well as conservation and science staff to assist with annual monitoring visits and related data collection on our preserves and conservation easement properties. The intern will travel to properties throughout the state to assist with field data collection, draft reports, research water records, and assist with other seasonal tasks such as rare plant and invasive species monitoring, outdoor land stewardship projects and maintaining online database records. This position will work with other interns to complete projects.
