    Part-Time Executive Director Job Description

    OVERVIEW

    Established in 2002, Oak Heritage Conservancy (Oak Heritage) is a land trust based in Hanover, Indiana. Oak Heritage conserves natural areas and wildlife habitat through land donations and conservation easements. We strive to protect the natural heritage of southeast Indiana and connect people to the natural world. Southeast Indiana is home to floodplain forests, waterfalls, forested uplands, and a wide diversity of flora and fauna worthy of protection. Oak Heritage currently holds three conservation easements on 563 acres, as well as thirteen nature preserves totalling 591 acres. Our preserves include over 100 acres of old growth forests and over 30 acres of restored pollinator habitats in addition to rolling forests, creeks, and restored wetlands. We host 2-3 programs per month for the public, as well as field trips for school groups and service opportunities at our nature preserves.
