Merrimack River Floodplain Ranger

Concord NH

Are you looking for a unique opportunity to promote responsible public use of an ecologically rich environment? Are you an experienced or aspiring outdoor stewardship professional? The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (Forest Society) is seeking two individuals to serve as onsite seasonal staff at our Merrimack River Outdoor Education & Conservation Area (Floodplain) in Concord, NH.

The successful candidates will have excellent communication skills and a strong interest in educating the public about the responsible use of the property. This is a part-time seasonal position.

The Forest Society owns and manages a 103-acre conservation area in Concord, NH along the banks of the Merrimack River. This property is an ecologically unique area shaped by the dynamic forces of the river and hosts a diverse mosaic of natural landscapes including a meadow, pine plantation, hardwood forests, marshes, and a silver maple floodplain forest. The property is well known regionally as a “hotspot” for a wide array of wildlife. Typical uses of the property by the public include hiking, swimming, dog walking, nature observation, and participation in regular seasonal educational programming hosted by the Forest Society. The Forest Society’s statewide headquarters, the Conservation Center, is adjacent to the Floodplain.

The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests was founded in 1901 and is among the oldest and largest non-profit land trusts in the US. The Forest Society is dedicated to protecting the state's most important landscapes while promoting the wise use of its renewable natural resources. We are a recognized leader in land protection, forest management, education, public recreation, and conservation advocacy. We own over 185 Forest Reservations distributed across the state covering over 57, 000 combined acres.
