Background Information

The Watershed Center is growing and we invite you to join us! Since 2004, the Watershed Center has been protecting and restoring watersheds for people and the environment using a collaborative and science-based approach. We pursue our mission across four core programs: Forest, River, Science, and Community.

Through these programs, we respond to the needs of our watersheds and communities. Over time these needs have included mine impacts, river restoration, adaptive management, fish passage, fire recovery, stewardship, outreach, education, monitoring, and forest management, among many others. Today our watersheds are facing increasing risk from wildfires and our communities and stakeholders are asking for science-informed planning and decision-making in how we prioritize projects and manage watersheds.

The Watershed Center is responding to these needs by growing capacity in our Forest and Science Programs. We are by hiring three new positions: Forest Program Manager, Forest Project Manager, and Science Program Manager. To fill these positions we are seeking creative and collaborative individuals who are passionate about science and community, and want to impact positive change in our watersheds!
