Director, California Water Program at The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy is searching for a collaborative, strategic, and driven leader to direct its Water Program in California.  The Director will lead a talented, multidisciplinary and matrixed team to advance a portfolio of strategies aimed at conserving and restoring freshwater ecosystems so they can sustain biodiversity and provide a suite of ecosystem services that benefit society.

Using the Conservancy’s signature non-confrontational, science-based, and solutions-oriented approach, the Water Program demonstrates how multi-benefit water management can help people and nature adapt to a rapidly changing world and maximize the conservation return from scarce water resources. Our strategies are designed to demonstrate solutions to major water challenges in California and to “scale up” successful models through policy change or other mechanisms that achieve conservation more broadly.

At the dawn of perhaps the most fateful decade for conservation in our lifetimes, this position offers an unrivaled opportunity to help change the trajectory of freshwater biodiversity conservation across and beyond California – from one of degradation and imperilment to one of sustainability and resiliency.

If you have questions about this position, please contact The Nature Conservancy in California’s Talent Manager, Amber Mello at or connect on LinkedIn.
