Thank you for your interest in career opportunities with the Aldo Leopold Foundation!
Future Leaders Program: 2023-2024 Education & Communication Fellow or Land Stewardship Fellow
Education and Communications Fellow
The Education & Communications Fellowship is a unique opportunity to build upon your education and communications background through the legacy of Aldo Leopold. Working side-by-side with experienced staff members, fellows will build a wide array of skills needed to contribute to, conduct, and manage education programs at non-profit conservation organizations through firsthand experience in visitor services, program planning, program marketing, and program delivery. Fellows will also gain experience in mission-based communications to a variety of strategic audiences both in-person and across digital platforms. Visitation and programming vary throughout the year, allowing for both periods of high visitor interaction and times of behind-the-scenes work in the office. Fellows will have opportunities to interact with both a diverse range of conservation professionals and the Leopold family, who play active roles in guiding and executing the foundation’s mission.
Land Stewardship Fellow
The Land Stewardship Fellowship is a unique opportunity to work side by side with experienced staff applying your existing knowledge and skills while learning new ones, ultimately enhancing your own land ethic. Surrounding Aldo Leopold’s famous Shack, the property has both restored and remnant native Wisconsin habitat ranging from prairies to floodplain forests to sedge meadows to oak savannas. This diverse outdoor classroom provides opportunities to learn first-hand about native plant communities, identify threats to native landscapes, and gain effective tools and strategies to effectively manage a number of diverse ecosystems. As seasons change, management focuses on different activities including invasive species control, prescribed burning, monitoring, timber stand improvement, educational programming, prairie planting, and more.
All applicants must be eligible to work in the United States at the time they apply and have a valid driver’s license. Fellows must commit full-time to the entire 12-month program. Deadline to apply is 11:59PM CST Wednesday, February 1st, 2023.
