The Resource Manager will provide critical administrative and fundraising support for Farrington Nature Linc (FNL). We are looking for a mission-focused, highly organized, detail-oriented, seasoned, process-minded team member with experience in facilities management, database management, bookkeeping, and administration. This person should have great people skills, emotional intelligence, and the ability to deliver measurable, cost-effective results.


Established in the early 1900’s, our mission is to enhance the well-being of children from low-income communities through a connection with the natural world. Our 75 acres of woodlands, fields and ponds near Boston are dedicated to providing respite and inspiration for children who might not otherwise have this opportunity. We envision a world in which every child has access to nature; every child learns that nature is a powerful source of health and happiness; and every child believes that stewardship of nature strengthens communities.


We are a small but mighty, and growing, team, serving over 2,500 youth per year through summer, vacation, and afterschool programs. Learn more at our website
