Associate Director – National Parks Conservation Association

0 Comment

The California Desert Associate Director manages all aspects of the California desert program including campaigns to protect the parks and adjacent lands, staffing, relationships, and public outreach. Specific campaigns include work on national monument creation and defense, protecting desert water resources, building a broader movement to protect the California desert, and highlighting publicly the values and need to protect the California desert. The California desert contains nearly 25% of all the national park lands in the lower 48 states and faces significant threats to its wildlife, ecological integrity, and its natural and cultural resources. It is also a frontier for scientific discovery, one of the most protected landscapes in the nation, and a place where landscape-scale conservation has and can continue to be achieved. We seek a thoughtful individual with the ability to become an expert on desert issues and policy and build community around conservation issues, to become a trusted and respected ally in this region that supports others, builds relationships, builds coalitions, and can support and create policy change on the local, regional, state and national level.
