Connect With Us for Future Opportunities
We will be hiring for a number of additional positions in the coming year (overviews provided below). Although these opportunities are not yet open for applications, we are working to expand our potential candidate pool in advance of growing our staff team.
We are hoping to meet people who share a passion for conserving and enhancing the natural world and preserving cultural heritage. We are looking for people who are eager to learn and who would be excited to work as part of a team caring for our incredible natural surroundings in the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Area.
We are also deliberately seeking to expand our network with communities of color because we recognize that our work is currently driven by an incomplete range of social and cultural perspectives. We would like our staff, board, and organizational partnerships to reflect the diversity of people in the communities across the Greenway landscape.
If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in learning more about the Greenway, we would love to connect to discover more about you and your interests. Please reach out to Tor Bell, the Greenway Trust’s Operations Director, to set up a conversation: email@example.com.
National Heritage Area
After years of advocacy, the Mountains to Sound Greenway has become one of our nation’s newest National Heritage Areas. As the coordinating entity, the Greenway Trust will aim to reach every community in the 1.5-million-acre landscape to engage an inclusive coalition of people as stewards of their public lands, trails, natural resources, and cultural heritage. The vision for this National Heritage Area (NHA) is driven by an overarching care for the Greenway, the people who live here, and the connections between them as we strive to inspire action that protects and enhances this place. As this initiative grows, we intend to add one more full-time staff member. This role will provide strategic guidance for collaborative partnerships, prioritize work to uplift the region’s tribal heritage and provide a platform for native voices, help finalize NHA management and interpretive plans, provide leadership to put these plans into action, and assist in building and strengthening our coalition.
Seasonal Positions – Education, Restoration, Trails
Each year, the Greenway Trust brings on multiple seasonal positions (full and part-time) to support elements of our Education, Restoration, and Recreation programs. These positions implement projects on the ground and are integral to the success of our field programs and our organization. We seek to bring in people with relevant experience or an interest in learning more about this field. Each year, we have a few leadership opportunities within our seasonal cohort and we offer relevant professional development opportunities to all members of the team. We strive to connect field crew members with other partner organizations and agencies so they can ask questions and build connections. Anyone interested is encouraged to reach out in advance to discuss these opportunities.
