Executive Director – Blue Water Baltimore

Baltimore, MD – Blue Water Baltimore, the leading water quality nonprofit organization in Baltimore, seeks a passionate, energetic, and inspirational leader to serve as its next Executive Director. This is an amazing opportunity to provide visionary leadership to an organization doing important work to restore the quality of Baltimore’s rivers, streams, and Harbor to foster a healthy environment, a strong economy, and thriving communities.

The water quality of Baltimore’s waterways has long been impacted by polluted stormwater runoff, trash, sewage, and toxic chemicals. Poor water quality harms the environment, threatens residents’ health, and endangers the vitality of the local economy. In 2010, five local grassroots environmental organizations joined forces as Blue Water Baltimore to collectively address water quality issues in Baltimore. Over its ten-year history, Blue Water Baltimore has built an engaged base of more than 20,000 supporters. Now one of the largest environmental groups in Maryland, Blue Water Baltimore informs, engages, and empowers people in Baltimore City and the surrounding region, working together toward a future where its streams, rivers, and Harbor are healthy, thriving ecosystems accessible and safe for residents, visitors, and commerce. To achieve these goals, Blue Water Baltimore monitors Baltimore area waterways for pollution, integrates arts and education into community greening and stormwater management projects, and works with an array of partners including schools, congregations, and hospitals to effect change on the ground. In addition to restoration activities, we also inform and mobilize residents in advocacy efforts for stronger clean water policies and programs, both locally and statewide. Blue Water Baltimore unites residents and public and private partners to accomplish more by working together than any one group could do alone for Baltimore’s water quality.
