Job Description: In our Portland office, we’re working to save Oregon’s oldest trees. Our forests, especially our oldest trees in places like the Willamette and Umpqua National Forests, help make Oregon a special place to live, providing habitat for thousands of species.

With offices in selected cities, we are hiring full-time staff, with leadership opportunities available, to work on issues like stopping plastic pollution, saving the bees, and moving towards a 100% clean energy future.
