0 Comment

LOCATION: Chico or Sacramento, CA

The Opportunity California’s freshwater environment and communities face daunting challenges. Most notably, a changing climate is increasing the frequency and intensity of droughts, wildfires, and floods—at the same time communities, farms, and wildlife that rely on freshwater ecosystems are struggling. But, this is also an energizing time for conservation in California. Leaders at all levels and across the political spectrum have made bold conservation commitments and launched historic initiatives to create a thriving future for our state. These same leaders are looking to proven, trusted organizations like River Partners to turn pledges into progress with boots-on-the ground action to increase the pace and scale of restoring California’s essential ecosystems, supporting the diverse communities that rely on them. River Partners seeks a dynamic Chief Finance and Operations Officer (CFOO) to build on our distinguished track record of success in helping California thrive.

About River Partners
A tenacious nonprofit founded in 1998, River Partners brings life back to California rivers.

We advance an innovative model of conservation that harnesses the power of restored riverways to create a thriving future for the states’ environment and economy. We revive and reconnect river landscapes, wildlife corridors, and critical watersheds across California. We achieve this by blending modern farming practices, cutting-edge science, and diverse alliances.

Working across nearly 20 watersheds statewide, River Partners has restored more habitat along impaired California rivers than any for- or non-profit organization in the West and is the only nonprofit driving large-scale floodplain reforestation in the river-rich Central Valley. Each year, we plant hundreds of thousands of native trees, shrubs, and grasses across thousands of acres along California’s most imperiled rivers. We achieve this bold action using public funding through a variety of transaction types that demand the highest level of administrative rigor and transparent reporting, including public works contracting, reimbursable public grants, and conservation easements and incentive payments.

River Partners is headquartered in Chico—with offices in Sacramento, Colusa, Modesto, and San Diego.
