Urban Tree Program Manager
Contact *: Amelia Rose (401) 559-2204
GWRI is seeking a new, full-time Urban Tree Program Manager to join our team. This position is currently funded through a U.S. Forest Service Landscape Scale Restoration Grant for two years. We hope to keep the position indefinitely with future fundraising. The Urban Tree Program Manager will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of an outreach, planting, and stewardship program for 2,000+ trees in Central Falls, Cumberland, Lincoln, and Woonsocket. Involvement in outreach, planting, and stewardship in other communities, including Providence, Pawtucket, and Johnston, is also highly likely. This role entails a mix of administrative duties, coordination and communication with other staff, data collection and tracking, and time out in the community assisting with outreach, tree planting, watering and other stewardship, as well as operational management (e.g. overseeing equipment purchases and maintenance, developing logistical plans for watering, and ensuring various staff are appropriately involved in all of these processes).
