WANTED: Executive Director for river restoration non-profit (Oregon)

Tualatin Riverkeepers (TRK) in Tualatin, Oregon is in search of a dynamic, capable and innovative leader to serve as our Executive Director. TRK is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tualatin River and its watershed, which is located primarily in Washington County, OR, and to the surrounding communities that depend on a healthy river.

TRK engages the public in this mission through four overarching programs: recreation, education, advocacy and habitat restoration. Located in a bustling and growing part of the Portland Metropolitan area, TRK’s membership and volunteers partner with farmers, industry, community based organizations and the private sector to promote stewardship of Washington County’s natural assets and to connect rural and urban residents to the Tualatin River.

TRK is part of a broader global “Waterkeeper” movement www.waterkeeper.org that has a rich history of linking human health, justice, and livelihoods to clean water and environmental protection.

Currently, TRK has a passionate staff of five who work together as a mission driven team, but in a relaxed and easy going atmosphere. An active board of up to thirteen members works closely with the Executive Director. TRK is financially stable with a budget of approximately a half million dollars.

Recently in 2017, Washington County passed a tax base to support millions of dollars of investment into watershed health, habitat restoration, and conservation education. This funding has not been fully defined, but presents an exciting opportunity to expand the organization’s role in the watershed.

The Executive Director provides creative and intelligent leadership to fulfill Tualatin Riverkeepers’ long-term mission and successfully executes the organization’s vision for the future. Duties include supervision of program staff, fund development, financial and contract management, and support of a board of directors.
