Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Outreach Associate, Chapters and Partnerships is a member of the National Audubon Society Western Water Initiative team focused on advancing balanced solutions to water use in the West to ensure birds, ecosystems, people and economies thrive. This position will be part of a new Audubon program focused on the Saline Lakes of the Intermountain West, with an initial focus on the Great Salt Lake. This network of lakes provides critically important breeding and stopover habitat for millions of migratory birds and supports local and regional economies. Under the direction of the Director of the Saline Lakes Program, the Outreach Associate will be responsible for maintaining and coordinating relationships with designated external partners and the Audubon network to support implementation of the Saline Lakes Program.
This position will be remotely located in Salt Lake City, UT until a program office is opened over the coming months.
