Sequoia Riverlands Trust (SRT) is a regional nonprofit land trust formed in 2001 to conserve the natural and agricultural legacy of the southern Sierra Nevada and San Joaquin Valley. SRT has ambitious programs in land and conservation easement acquisition (habitat and farmland), land stewardship, restoration, conservation outreach, and education.
SRT seeks talented individuals dedicated to the conservation of our natural resources, and we offer our staff competitive salary and benefits. SRT is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
The Sequoia Riverlands Trust (SRT) Board of Directors has announced the retirement at the end of 2019 of Soapy Mulholland, President/CEO. During her nearly 20 years of leadership, Soapy has successfully guided the organization from inception to its current status as a nationally recognized and accredited land trust. Today the organization is fully staffed with experts in the field of conservation, and has worked with farmers and ranchers, other non-profits, and agencies to protect over 40,000 acres of land from development. SRT hosts an exceptional education program serving school districts, interns, and adults, and supports a policy department which works on policies affecting farmers, ranchers and recreationists at local, state and national levels. While Soapy may be irreplaceable, the Board has engaged Jenn Raley Miller of executive search firm Waldron to find SRT’s next exceptional leader.
This is a unique opportunity to lead an innovative land trust organization into its next stage of development. Working with and through a committed and knowledgeable team, and in partnership with a well-connected Board of Directors, the Executive Director will weave together SRT’s conservation, mitigation, education, and policy programs in a way that ensures financial sustainability and meets the needs of SRT’s diverse stakeholders in the counties it serves.
Sequoia Riverlands Trust is headquartered in Visalia, CA, in the southern Central Valley near the Sierra Nevada foothills. This welcoming, close-knit community of 136,000 residents is growing due to its affordability and easy commutes, combined with an urban lifestyle that features a charming downtown that supports the arts, music, theatre, and a vibrant nightlife.
