Conservation Manager - Wilderness Society
The Wilderness Society is focused on making America’s system of public lands part of the solution to the most pressing conservation challenges of our day: climate change, unprecedented species extinction and inequitable access to nature’s benefits. We work with diverse partners to find common ground around enduring, science-based conservation solutions, combining long term investments in community-led conservation, deep public lands expertise, and commitment to advocacy efforts that share voice, power, and impact.
The Conservation Manager is a core member of The Wilderness Society’s Washington State team focused on landscape conservation on the eastern slope of the North Cascades. Working under the Washington State Director, the Conservation Manager plays a critical role in collaboratively developing and implementing conservation solutions that address the climate and biodiversity crises and help ensure diverse communities have equitable access to and receive equitable benefits from nature. To be effective, the Conservation Manager must excel at cultivating and managing relationships with a diverse range of partners and stakeholders and, ideally, have a working knowledge of forest ecology and management on the eastern slope of the North Cascades.
This position plays an important role in supporting an inclusive organizational culture that is grounded in trust and accountability to shared goals and outcomes. TWS has made diversity, equity, and inclusion strategic priorities for the organization and the Conservation Manager will integrate these priorities throughout our Washington program work. Across our team, we aspire to be campaign oriented, nimble, collaborative, innovative, transparent, and supportive of staff – our greatest asset.
