The Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC) position is a partnership between the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Wareham Land Trust. The CEC will be hosted at the Buzzards Bay Coalition as a member of the Community Engagement department and will be supervised and supported by the Coalition's Communications Director. With training and support from the Coalition and in coordination with the Wareham Land Trust, the CEC will increase these organizations' capacity to engage with more people through programs and projects that serve the town of Wareham and surrounding communities.
The Buzzards Bay Coalition and Wareham Land Trust have proposed the following potential projects for their Community Engagement Coordinator:
1) Assist in the creation and marketing of engaging digital content on the Buzzards Bay Coalition and Wareham Land Trust blogs and social media to guide new and diverse constituencies in outdoor exploration at conservation lands across the Buzzards Bay watershed. 2) Expand awareness of publicly accessible conservation lands in the greater Wareham area through collaborations with local newspapers, digital media outlets, and other community partners. 3) Grow the Coalition's "Discover Buzzards Bay" initiative by visiting conservation lands throughout the Buzzards Bay watershed and creating maps, blog posts, videos, and other public information materials about these properties to encourage diverse groups and demographics to get outside and explore. 4) Provide outdoor exploration programs for families and adults and promote outdoor recreation at outreach events across the region.
