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).
Audubon Pennsylvania has been working in Philadelphia for more than 10 years, engaging Philadelphians in on-the-ground habitat work, environmental education in schools, and community planning projects. The Project Coordinator will lead and/or assist with delivering conservation, education and outreach programs around the city, stemming from the needs of local teachers and leaders. S/he will work closely with Philadelphia staff to strengthen and expand Audubon's programs and deepen the organization's work within targeted communities.
This is a permanent full-time opportunity. The Coordinator will work from the Discovery Center in East Fairmount Park and be directed and supervised by the Program Manager, Community Stewardship.
