CBWN Seeking Directors

Help guide the Columbia Basin Watershed Network!

The Directors of the Columbia Basin Watershed Network invite interested members to join the Board as Directors and help guide the organization. We are seeking people with a range of skills, including a commitment to peer-to-peer learning and collaboration, the ability to see the big picture, and an interest in helping strengthen watershed stewardship across the Columbia Basin. Current Board members are spread throughout the Basin and alternate online and in-person meetings. Do you have two to eight hours per month to devote to regional watershed stewardship?

Our Vice-chair Richard Johnson would be happy to tell you more about the organization and how you could help. Please contact him here.
