The Washington Coast Sustainable Salmon Foundation is seeking an Executive Director.

In so doing, the Foundation seeks to help maintain vibrant and diverse local, natural resource-based communities.

The Foundation is the “sister” organization to the Washington Coast Sustainable Salmon Partnership (Partnership), a cooperative venture of the Lead Entity Groups for salmon recovery in Watershed Resource Inventory Areas (WRIAs) 20 through 24, also known as the “Washington Coast Region,” established and organized for the purpose of facilitating collaborative decision-making in support of
salmonid restoration and sustainability.

Staff, under the direction of the Executive Director, work for the Foundation and in support of the Partnership to pursue the goal of salmon sustainability in the Washington Coast Region through the implementation of the Washington Coast Sustainable Salmon Plan.
