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 mission of Trinity River Audubon Center is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. Reporting to the Executive Director of Audubon Texas, the Center Director at Trinity River Audubon Center (TRAC) will have four core functions: manage all TRAC operations; work closely with State Conservation staff in efforts forthe Water Conservation and Bird Friendly Communities strategies; play a significant and proactive role in fundraising for TRAC facilities and operations as well as other statewide initiatives; and serve on the Audubon Texas senior management team convened by the Executive Director.
The Center Director, therefore, plays an important role in carrying out the mission of Audubon Texas and the National Audubon Society (NAS). The Center’s programs, developed in conjunction with relevant stakeholders, include elements of all Audubon’s core approaches to conservation – education, science, public policy, and direct habitat management.
