AVSWCD is seeking applicants for our District Director role. The District Director supports the goals of the Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District, as directed by the Board of Supervisors, through grant research and writing, coordinating outreach efforts, developing partnerships, and serving as a liaison for the agency to the public and private sector.
The District provides farmers, woodland owners, and residents with information and techniques that protect the soil, water, and natural resources of Androscoggin and Sagadahoc counties. Currently the District provides educational workshops, technical trainings, and outreach events that cover topics ranging from forestry management, pollinator and wildlife habitat, soil health, foraging, and invasive plant/forest pest species. The District partners with local, state, and federal organizations to expand the reach of our services.
The ideal candidate will have experience and/or education in conservation, non-profit work and grant writing, but we will train the right person if necessary. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. We will accept applications until we find the right person.
