Dear Conservation Hero,
Do you love the Eastern Sierra? Are you looking for a way to give back to our land and community? Apply today to become ESLT’s next AmeriCorps Member!
We are seeking an enthusiastic, conservation-minded young leader to commit to an eight-month service term to help protect the Eastern Sierra by joining us as this year’s AmeriCorps Member and Education Coordinator. You can help us fill this important role by applying or forwarding this email to someone you think might be great for the job. The service term will start in late February and goes through September.
This new full-time team member will lead and collaborate primarily on education and
outreach projects that inspire and engage our local community in conservation. These
projects include certifying pollinator-friendly gardens, organizing field trips, teaching
seminars and workshops, and organizing volunteer projects.
ESLT’s Education Program has a long history of providing outstanding lessons for local schoolkids. As the coordinator of our Education Program, our new SNAP member will lead this integral part of our work!
Want to hear directly from a SNAP member? Last year’s AmeriCorps Member/Education Coordinator, Claire, shared her experience at ESLT on our blog.
“There is so much room for partnerships around here since it’s a smaller town – people really want to work together. ESLT is very community driven. It’s energizing to be in touch with the community, especially if you’re an early-career professional. It can open a lot of doors for you in the Eastern Sierra” – Claire Marvet, ESLT’s 2021-2022 AmeriCorps Member/Education Coordinator

The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership is implemented by the Sierra Nevada
Alliance, a nonprofit conservation organization that has served as a voice for the Sierra
since 1992. ESLT has hosted talented SNAP members every year since the Sierra Nevada Alliance began the program in 2007.
