WANTED: Executive Director for watershed restoration non-profit (Connecticut)

the Farmington River Watershed Association seeks an Executive Director for its Simsbury, Connecticut headquarters.

Every year, thousands of people canoe, kayak and fish the waters of the Farmington River, as well as visit the state parks, forests and historic mills that dot the river’s edge. Recreational value, rare wildlife, outstanding fisheries and a rich history are some of the outstanding features of the Farmington.

In August 1994, Congress added 14 miles of the Farmington River’s West Branch to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. This exciting milestone in the river’s history recognizes the Farmington’s beauty and character, and ensures that it will be enjoyed by generations to come.

Founded in 1953 by concerned local residents to address the critical water quality problems of that era, the Farmington River Watershed Association (FRWA), is a 501 c (3) nonprofit that works with federal, state and local governments, business and industry, and with people in the watershed’s 33 communities to protect this beautiful river and its surrounding landscape.

Although led by professional staff, FRWA relies on members, volunteers, other nonprofits, government agencies and business, all of who offer expertise, funds, time, and other assistance to protect the watershed. Areas of focus for FRWA include water quality, water allocation, habitat restoration, recreation, open space, and wetland and floodplain protection.

This search is being conducted by TSNE MissionWorks’ Executive Transitions Program with Transition Consultant John Tarvin.
