Land Steward

The Land Steward’s top-line priority is to protect, improve, and manage RCLC properties. This includes restoring native plant and wildlife habitats, and ensuring safe and enjoyable visitor experiences to RCLC’s publicly-accessible properties and trail easements. Mill Bend Preserve (MBP) will be the primary property responsibility, but tasks may also include Gualala Bluff Trail, Cooks Beach, Hearn Gulch, and the Gualala Cemetery.

RCLC is shifting to a new level of restoration activity at Mill Bend Preserve, previously the site of multiple timber mills. The Land Steward will be asked to coordinate and implement these initiatives, toward realizing the Preserve’s potential as a regional hub for celebrating the vitality of native habits and inspiring natural lands enjoyment and education.
