Executive Director – Siskiyou Land Trust

0 Comment

Siskiyou Land Trust (SLT) is seeking an energetic, collaborative, visionary Executive Director (ED) to lead our successful, growing organization into a dynamic future.  This position provides an extraordinary opportunity for our next ED to focus on strategic direction and to coordinate with Board leadership in order to shape the evolution of SLT and assure its sustainability.

About Us: 

SLT was created in 1993 as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization to ensure that the natural wealth of the community as well as the wild and working lands of our region endure forever.  Our mission is to conserve, protect and enhance precious lands in the Siskiyou County region to benefit our human and natural communities. Based in Mt. Shasta, California, SLT serves Siskiyou County and our work impacts partners and stakeholders throughout the state. As SLT has evolved into a professional conservation organization and added skilled staff, we have seen impressive conservation project growth and recognition in recent years.  Our efforts have resulted in sixteen conserved properties, eleven held under conservation easements and five owned in fee.  SLT also holds two trail easements for community greenways in Mt. Shasta. Together, our conserved properties comprise over 41,000 acres.  Our ten active acquisition projects with secured and pending funding would cover approximately an additional 20,000 of headwater forest, agricultural, and wildlands in the Scott, Shasta, and Upper Sacramento River watersheds.

With our robust reputation, history of successful conservation transactions and skilled, dedicated staff members, the opportunities for future growth are enormous.  SLT recognizes that, in order to responsibly embrace those opportunities, we need a leader who can bring our operational systems, fundraising, staffing and strategic planning into alignment with the larger, more vigorous organization we have become.
