We recognize this is a challenging time for hiring, both for the organization and candidate. SYRCL will not hire for most positions without being able to meet in person, a benefit to both parties. However, we are eager to fill our open positions and would like to have applications on hand for all interested so we can hire swiftly when the time comes. Phone screens and preliminary video interviews may occur in the meantime to expedite the process.

Communications & Engagement Director

People Can Save a River is SYRCL’s guiding principle. Engaging the community and working with partners has always been central to our success and we are seeking a Communications Director who is a seasoned professional with experience leading a successful team, who is an outstanding writer excelling at external communications, and strategic thinking. The Director will be highly skilled in using communication and engagement tools to advance our policy, advocacy, legal, and scientific work to protect the watershed. DETAILS

Watershed Science Director

SYRCL’s interdisciplinary Watershed Science team works to ensure a healthy and resilient watershed through diverse restoration, monitoring, and water quality projects. Overseeing a team of nine, the Watershed Science Director brings scientific expertise to shape our vision for a healthy Yuba River watershed. This person will develop projects with staff and partner organizations; implement program goals, strategies, and work plans; and oversee deliverables such as scientific reports and other media. A strong presence as a scientific spokesperson in the local and the scientific community, as well as experience obtaining and managing large grants will also be expected. DETAILS


Each year more than 1,500 volunteers help restore mountain meadows, monitor the health of the river, advocate for a clean Yuba and inspire activism with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Together we extend a powerful coalition from the summit to the sea. DETAILS
