Upper San Pedro Program Director

The Nature Conservancy in Arizona

An incredible opportunity to join a leading conservation organization working along one of the last major free-flowing river systems in the Southwest – the bi-national San Pedro. The Upper San Pedro (USP) Program has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally for its collaborative regional water management efforts. The area contains the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, managed by the US Bureau of Land Management, and has a history of more extensive hydrologic monitoring and research programs than most basins in the US, along with highly successful collaboration as it relates to on-ground conservation solutions. The USP Program Director provides strategic leadership to support the creation and implementation of plans, programs and projects to sustain and enhance the San Pedro’s groundwater aquifer and streamflows. Reporting to the Arizona Director of Conservation Programs, the Director will supervise the USP Program Coordinator and coordinate the chapter’s internal cross-functional San Pedro River team representing all aspects of science, protection and stewardship for the entire watershed.

The ideal candidate will have at least 7-10 years of experience in water management issues and a working knowledge of hydrologic and riparian ecosystem processes, plus proven success building effective relationships with diverse stakeholders; leading cross-functional teams and influencing interdisciplinary groups; using science to develop and implement conservation policy, projects and plans; and serving as a principal contact for the organization bridging the varied urban and rural cultures and interests. Bachelor’s degree required in a related area, master’s preferred. Compensation is competitive and includes excellent benefits plus relocation assistance to the Sierra Vista vicinity.
