Chief Operating Officer – Save the Redwoods League

Save the Redwoods League seeks a dynamic and experienced Chief Operating Officer to play a pivotal role in driving sustainable organizational operations and growth and operationalizing the League’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Save the Redwoods League works to accelerate the pace of redwood conservation by acquiring and restoring redwood forests at scale. It connects people to these iconic landscapes by increasing access and improving parks and programs in the redwood range. Protected redwood forests, scaled restoration, and a landscape of responsibly managed working forests are critical investments in forest health and sustainability. By maximizing the climate resilience, biodiversity, tribal engagement, and community benefit of this globally unique ecosystem, we believe that California can lead a new worldwide era of forest stewardship and climate resilience.

The League is embarking on a Centennial Vision for Redwoods Conservation that will double the size of the protected coastal redwood forest, put young forests on the path to becoming old-growth at a landscape scale, restore the natural fire resilience of the Giant Sequoia, and connect people to these magical places through magnificent parks. Realizing this vision will require everyone who loves the redwoods to get behind this ambitious effort.

The Chief Operating Officer (COO) will provide critical leadership as the League embarks on a new chapter to thoughtfully carry the organization through a period of growth and transformation. The COO will manage the day-to-day internal operations of the organization, operationalize best practices, maximize efficiency as the organization grows in impact and size, and steward our commitment to and implementation of our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) plan.

Interested candidates should apply by January 1, 2024 for priority consideration.
