The goal of the Center for Responsible Forestry is to permanently conserve mature, structurally complex “legacy forests” on state forest lands managed by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). We define legacy forests as mature forests that were typically logged prior to World War II and left to grow back on their own (naturally regenerated). Join a passionate team of people who are committed to getting legacy forests protected because of their importance to biodiversity and climate change!
Location: Remote, but an ideal candidate would live within 30 miles of Olympia. Frequent trips to Olympia will be necessary, as well as occasional trips to other locations in Western Washington.
Hours: 30-40 hours per week. Starting February 1st 2023, ending late May 2023.
Salary: Commensurate with experience. Range is $3600-4200/month

Protect WA State Legacy Forests Campaign
Washington State’s older state-owned forests store carbon at remarkable rates. These older forests are also being clear-cut at alarming rates under current state policy—up to 5,000 more acres are slated to be cut in the next year. This aggressive rate of logging worsens climate change, landslides and flooding. To meet our 2050 climate goals, we must create new tools and approaches including the state’s new Natural Climate Solutions Account to 1) immediately protect these carbon dense forests and 2) purchase replacement lands for timber production to maintain rural jobs and to protect our forests from conversion and development.
While the Campaign Organizer will be working closely with consultants and coalition members on the campaign, they will be working for CRF to support our objective of protecting legacy forests.
About The Position
Our Campaign Organizer will coordinate and oversee many aspects of the campaign, working with the campaign committee, volunteers around WA State, the CRF team and campaign consultants.
Timeline: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. We have the intention of hiring by February 1st 2023. This position will run through late May 2023. There is the possibility to continue employment in a similar position with the Center for Responsible Forestry beyond the May end date.
