Chimacum Ridge Forest by Tim Lawson/LEO.
Jefferson Land Trust’s Board of Directors is seeking three community members to serve on the new seven-member, volunteer Chimacum Ridge Community Forest Board of Managers. If you’re a resident of East Jefferson County with enthusiasm for the Land Trust’s mission, a deep knowledge of the local community, and a strong interest in community forests, we encourage you to apply.
The Community Forest Board of Managers will oversee the establishment and operation of Chimacum Ridge Community Forest following the purchase of the Chimacum Ridge Forest property by Jefferson Land Trust before the end of 2023.
To be considered for the role, you should have skills and experience directly related to the management and development of the community forest, as well as good leadership, listening, engagement, and strategic thinking skills. You should also be committed to the Land Trust’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice principles, and able to engage with the public and synthesize feedback from members of three forest advisory groups. Lastly, you’ll need to be able to make a minimum two-year commitment to the role, with significant monthly/yearly time requirements.
If you’re passionate about our community, enjoy volunteering, and have a desire to help establish and operate Chimacum Ridge Community Forest, we look forward to hearing from you!
