Driftless Area Land Conservancy (DALC) seeks a Community Organizer to develop strategies, messages, and programs.
DALC is a regional, nonprofit conservation organization that serves the Driftless Area of Iowa, Lafayette, and Richland counties, as well as portions of Sauk, Dane, Green and Grant counties.

River Revitalization Foundation (RRF) seeks a Restoration Specialist. This position will carry out the goals and objectives of RRF, Milwaukee’s urban rivers’ land trust, in accordance with its mission: to establish a parkway for public access, walkways, recreation and education, bordering the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic Rivers; to use the rivers to revitalize surrounding neighborhoods; and to improve water quality.
RRF is conducting ecological restoration of critical areas of riparian habitat along the Milwaukee River. The projects involve planting native trees along the riverbank to create better aquatic habitat, planting trees in upland areas to create seed bank for future regeneration, removing non-native plants, and planting Wisconsin-native plants in their place. The project areas are generally located within the Milwaukee River Greenway including county parkland. The Restoration Specialist will be implementing RRF’s land management plans and the project goals of a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI).
