The Long Tom Watershed Council is seeking applicants for an Urban Waters and Wildlife Partnership Coordinator who will support the work of the Urban Waters and Wildlife Partnership (UWWP) and the Trout Friendly Landscape Program. This program has been in existence since 2011 with a focus on reducing or eliminating pollution and runoff, improving water quality, and protecting habitat while promoting citizen engagement and knowledge. The Urban Waters & Wildlife Partnership is a more recently developed collaborative that has supported the expansion of the program throughout the Upper Willamette Watershed’s urban and rural communities and is supported by a broad coalition of governmental and quasi-governmental entities, utilities, watershed councils, and others. These 13 entities are active in their support of the UWWP, assisting in decision making, fundraising, education, monitoring, and other programmatic aspects of the work.
The UWWP Coordinator will support and refine the existing infrastructure of meetings and subcommittees, along with funding and reporting assistance. This position will also support the Partnership in its growth and the development and refining of effectiveness monitoring, essentially working with partners to ensure that the Partnership is running smoothly, fulfilling its commitments, and achieving impact in line with Partners and Funders expectations.
