In Seattle, Washington, Forterra seeks a full-time Director of Riparian Restoration.
The Director of Riparian Restoration is focused on sustaining and generating riparian restoration programs and business opportunities within Forterra’s geographic reach and supports the work of other Forterra programs with technical recommendations as relate to riparian corridors. This position supervises two staff members and manages Forterra’s Washington Conservation Corps crew and AmeriCorps positions when serving on riparian restoration projects.
Forterra’s Riparian Restoration Program is a landscape-scale, community focused restoration model that offers invasive plant abatement on public and private lands (primarily knotweed control), native plant installations, collaborative restoration projects with private streamside landowners, and targeted outreach and educational programming. The Riparian Restoration Program team works in partnership with local jurisdictions, government, and other non-profit organizations.
Forterra’s mission is to secure places—urban, rural, and wild—that are keystones of a sustainable future for all. From wildlands and working farms and forests, to places in the city for affordable housing, parks and the arts, we work simultaneously across all landscapes because they are interconnected. And ultimately people and lands must all thrive together.
To achieve this mission, Forterra works with regional partners and stakeholders to engage in community visioning, planning, policy work, economic development, recreation initiatives, stewardship and conservation—all with the aim of making land conservation work for our communities. Forterra also draws on its real estate expertise to help urban communities accommodate new growth while maintaining a high quality of life for all residents.
