Website: Visit www.nature.org/aboutus to learn more.

The Nature Conservancy is looking for a Land Protection Specialist to work as part of a team to protect high quality natural areas in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota.  The current focus of this position will be to acquire fee-title and conservation easements on native prairie, primarily in western Minnesota. They offer competitive compensation, 401k or savings-plan matching for eligible employees, excellent benefits, flexible work policies and a collaborative work environment. We also provide professional development opportunities and promote from within. As a result, you will find a culture that supports and inspires conservation achievement and personal development, both within the workplace and beyond.

Essential Functions
The Nature Conservancy is seeking an experienced professional to join the team responsible for the Conservancy’s land protection program in MN, ND, and SD. The Land Protection Specialist (LPS) plays a critical role in negotiating, acquiring land and conservation easements, cooperative acquisition with government partners, developing and implementing landscape level land protection plans, and, where appropriate, transferring land interests to partner agencies. 

The LPS will work with landowners, Conservancy staff, federal, state, and local agency professionals, and citizens to promote protection programs on public and private land. The LPS will travel extensively in western MN and to selected locations in North Dakota and/or South Dakota. 

One of the critical objectives for this position is initiating and developing relationships with landowners and partners in our highest priority conservation landscapes.  This requires frequent travel to meet with people in these targeted places.  These visits will often include off-road exploration of priority properties.  Close coordination with the real estate and legal staff in the Minneapolis office is also essential and requires monthly trips to and from Minneapolis.  We estimate the travel requirements of this position will be 25% to 50%.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic, results-oriented team focused on conserving some of the best natural areas in MN, ND, and SD.  The work is fast-paced, challenging, and highly rewarding.  With funding from the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy amendment, and other sources, this team has grown to be one of the largest and most active real estate teams in The Nature Conservancy.
