TerraCorps Land Stewardship Coordinator (LSC) with The 300 Committee Land Trust
TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, our vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for ALL people in EVERY community.
The 300 Committee Land Trust has proposed the following potential project(s) for their TerraCorps Land Stewardship Coordinator:
- Address concerns uncovered from previous property monitoring : T3C has experienced tremendous growth in our stewardship capacity, and with increased tracking, reporting, and volunteer help, exposing needs within our current capacity. The expansion of property monitoring through our Landscape Conservation Software has helped us to identify issues on the land that need to be addressed. The TerraCorps member will help triage and address the concerns discovered through this reporting.
- Inclusion & Accessibility: As more people have been using the land as a respite during the pandemic, the need for improved mapping and signage has become evident. T3C will continue to install signage, publish maps, and strive to bring awareness of the resources T3C can provide for everyone in our community. The TerraCorps member will help us identify further opportunities for inclusion, increase accessibility and help us be responsible stewards of our holdings.
- Implementing management plans: A long-standing goal of our Stewardship Committee has been to implement land management and forestry management plans to improve the habitats our lands provide. Over the past three years, state funding has been leveraged for forestry management plans on 11 properties with projects detailing everything from invasive species removal to fostering native plant growth. With an invigorated volunteer crew, we look forward to implementing these objectives with the help and creativity of a TerraCorps member.
