Executive Director

You’re driven. Creative. A builder. You are passionate about the vital role rivers have in delivering water to our communities, farmers, and critical ecosystems like forests, wetlands, and oceans. You know, to your core, that to have healthy, resilient, carbon-capturing natural and built environments, we need healthy rivers.

You know rivers. You believe that local communities are the best stewards of their rivers and that people need to know them to care for them. Fish them. Paddle them. Walk along riverside trails. Plant trees on their banks. You understand that everyone, regardless of their race or the size of their paycheck, deserves equal and joyous access to the rivers and green spaces we all share.

You understand business. You respect how challenging it is to balance building and maintaining success, making payroll, and creating supply chains and business practices that respect people and environments we live in. You understand the importance of corporate responsibility — reducing harm while you build, and giving back when you can.

You get cause marketing. Because it’s important to let people know, we’re doing good work here.

You are a connector. You have a history of working inclusively, reaching out to diverse communities and people of all races and socio-economic and disability statuses. You thrive when working with people and organizations to meet mutual goals, understanding that to achieve the results we want — healthy and thriving rivers and communities — we need all the help we can get.
