Not a good place.
Development (Former Employee) –  Toronto21 December 2017
You'll get a sense of satisfaction with the mission of the organization, but that vanishes pretty fast when you see what really goes on behind the scenes. They are happy to take money from some of the most environmentally destructive organizations on the planet, but somehow think they are doing good. Management are largely hacks and wash outs from the environmental movement, are friends of senior staff or are connected to money with little to no experience in the areas they are managing.. High turn over, low moral, low pay.

Canada's leading national land conservation organization
Communications Intern (Former Employee) –  ON28 September 2013
I enjoyed planning and producing a comprehensive public relations project around the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s field internship program in Ontario. I created a project plan and work schedule with help from the Communications Manager, Ontario Region and the National Conservation Engagement Manager.

I created a field visit schedule in coordination with field interns for gathering information, photographs and video footage.

I discovered how dedicated NCC is to conservation initiatives through researching and producing stories in a variety of formats (video, photographic, written for web and print) as directed by the project plan.

Landownership Archivist (Former Employee) –  Town Hall at St. George's, NL1 March 2013
A typical day at work was collecting data from the local Surveyor, such as Government Grants, Deeds and any other land information possible. Interviewing residents of Sandy Point. Getting to know the people who lived there and how it was to live on an Island with no vehicles except for horse and buggy. Collecting information on Landownership.

There was plenty to learn. The way they lived with no electricity, They used wind chargers. They traveled to the main lands through boat and ships. There were shipwrecks and ship sinking. The community was split between religions, Catholic living Up Along and Protestants living Down Along. They interacted with each other, Involved both priest in their ceremonies and funerals. They abandoned the community around the late 60's during the installation of the train and because of lack of doctors and travel and other modern day utilities.

Management was in St. John's, NL but was always available for any questions or supplies.

Co-workers were always available to help and to supply travel to and from the community.

The hardest part of the job was learning how much the residents loved their community and having to look at their parent's homes in vandalism and ruin when they would visit their home town of Sandy Point.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the people from Sandy Point. Spending time with them and learning how they managed with what they had. I remember students coming to our class from Sandy Point. How we have evolved.
getting pictures from the residents, putting pictures together for stories surrounding the community of sandy point.
not all residents knew if their parents owned land.
