The Palouse Land Trust is a non-profit organization that supports a collaborative work environment and commitment to diversity.

The Conservation Projects Manager will report to the Executive Director and be an integral team member on a dedicated staff that is overseen by a volunteer board of directors. This position serves as the main point of contact to develop land protection projects and partnerships that further advance PLT’s work to conserve open space, working farm and ranchland, and important wildlife habitat in north-central Idaho and Whitman County, Washington.
