Executive Director

Northcoast Regional Land Trust

Bayside, CA

Admin/ Gen Mgmt
Nat. Resources/ Restoration

Skill Level: Senior Level

Position Type: Full Time

~ The Northcoast Regional Land Trust was formed in 2000 by a diverse group of people with backgrounds in land use planning, ranching , farming, fisheries, forestry and others concerned with protecting the North Coast's extraordinary environment and quality of life. ~

A mild maritime climate, a coastal mountain range, and wild rivers define our region. Cool air from the Pacific brushes the coast with generous rainfall, nurturing dense coniferous forests and rising to the oak-peppered bald prarie hills at the foot of the Klamath knot of mountains. Veins of creeks and rivers carry the pacific moisture back to the rugged coast, through raging canyons and wide river deltas. In its entirety, the North Coast offers community - as habitat for a vast mosaic of wildlife, living among an inspired people.

Congestion in other urban areas of California has contributed to a steep climb in the real estate value of our agricultural lands and other natural areas, catalyzing their conversion to residential development.
