Overview

The Land Trust Alliance is the voice of the land trust community. As the national leader in policy, standards and education, we work passionately to support land trusts across America so they can save more land and better serve their communities.

Our natural places and working lands are a lifeline to clean air, water, food and good health. These lands also bring us together, inspire us and provide opportunities to recreate and recharge. The land trust community is a crucial component in this equation. With important places under continual threat, land trusts need access to the best tools, information and policy advocates. Armed with a diverse network and valuable resources, the Alliance is the land trust community’s source for the knowledge and capabilities they need to reach their goals. From tax and funding policies on Capitol Hill to innovative ideas, partnerships and initiatives, we ensure our land trust members can always be heard and achieve more. 

Summary Description

Help strengthen land conservation across America and see the results of your work on the national stage. We’re looking for a project intern starting January 4, 2021 to support the next National Land Trust Census (http://www.lta.org/census). 

A smooth data collection process is integral to the success of the Census—one of the Alliance’s most prominent, public-facing projects and a critical resource for land trust success. This intern will provide essential support to make responding to the Census survey as easy as possible for the more than 700 organizations we expect to participate.

The start and end dates are flexible, but ideally through at least April 15, 2021. This is a paid position of 30 hours per week. We anticipate that the Alliance’s physical offices will remain closed during this time, so all work will be done remotely.

The ideal candidate is a student or young professional with an interest in land conservation and in the nuts and bolts of creating the most comprehensive data source for land protected by private non-profit organizations in the United States. You’ll find that interning for a small organization will give you ample opportunities to interact directly with land trusts across the country and to shape the story of land conservation on the national and regional level.

Specific Responsibilities

  • Track and generate weekly reports of respondents to date, including breakdowns by state, region and priority groups
  • Assist land trusts in accessing and navigating the web survey
  • Field questions from land trusts by phone and email
  • Create and run web-based data reports
  • Follow up with survey respondents for additional information and clarification as needed
  • Data entry as needed to maintain current record
  • Work in partnership with state land trust associations and other partners to publicize the Census
  • Personal outreach to land trusts to encourage their participation
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

Qualifications

  • Strong oral and written communications skills
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • Strong experience with Microsoft Excel, including writing formulas and creating PivotTables.
  • The ability to self-motivate and work independently is essential.
  • Experience with data analysis, website support, iMIS and/or Crystal Reports is a plus.
  • Familiarity with land conservation, including knowledge of land trusts, is helpful.


The Land Trust Alliance’s mission is to save the places people need and love by strengthening land conservation across America. The Land Trust Alliance is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability or marital status.
