Plant Protection Program Manager – American Public Gardens Association

The American Public Gardens Association seeks a plant protection program manager. The Plant Protection Program Manager will ensure the Plant Protection Program’s ongoing engagement with Association members, recruit and retain new gardens, secure and steward programmatic funding and budgets, and continue to expand the program.  They train staff at several member gardens, coordinate targeted pest surveys, and develop new and revised educational materials about the importance of the urban forest, forest health, and plant protection for various audiences.

The Plant Protection Program currently combines the Sentinel Plant Network, Plant Heroes™, and other important urban forest health elements into a cohesive and powerful platform that positions our gardens as leaders in the battle against invasive species and other threats to healthy forests and gardens.

They seek someone who can combine their passions for invasive pest and/or disease management along with some hands-on experience in either horticulture/land stewardship/urban forestry/education/interpretation to continue the impact and trajectory of this program which is currently being disseminated to broad audiences (professional and public) throughout North America in multiple languages.
