Communications Director – SYRCL/Yuba River Waterkeeper

The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL – pronounced circle) was founded in 1983 by grassroots activists determined to protect the South Yuba River from dams. Ultimately, SYRCL won permanent protections for 39 miles of the South Yuba River under California’s Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Today, SYRCL is the central hub of community activism to protect, restore, and celebrate the Yuba River watershed. With 36 years of achievements, 3,500 members and 1,000 active volunteers, SYRCL is doing great things for the Yuba watershed. SYRCL is a leader in the Sierra headwaters for addressing statewide and regional issues – challenging new dams, recovering endangered species, addressing climate change and drought, water security and water quality. Together, we are extending our powerful coalition from the summit to the sea.

People Can Save a River is SYRCL’s guiding principle. Since our founding, SYRCL has defended the Yuba River time and again. Engaging the community and working with partners has always been central to our success and we are seeking a Communications Director who is a seasoned professional and strategic thinker with experience leading a successful team and demonstrated excellence with external communications, and outstanding writing skills. The Director will be highly skilled in using communication and engagement tools encompassing our policy, advocacy, legal, and scientific work to unite and protect the watershed.
