Willamette Partnership is a conservation non-profit dedicated to solving complex environmental problems in ways
that work for people. We are known for building pragmatic collaborations and creating solutions that improve
environmental, social, and economic outcomes.

At the Partnership we believe that diverse perspectives create stronger solutions and approach our work through
collaboration – relying on partnerships with the conservation, business, government, agriculture, public health,
community development, and scientific communities.

OUR TEAM

Willamette Partnership is a small team of talented individuals. We conduct our work in a way that embodies our
values— integrity, leadership, collaboration, passion, and balance. We attract people that are excited to grow, learn,
and lend their individual strengths toward achieving bigger, better, and faster delivery of conservation and
restoration. We value the motivations that inspire each person to keep pushing the conversation community forward.

THE POSITION

Willamette Partnership’s Clean Water program is focused on ways to meet the water quality needs of natural and
human communities. We envision water infrastructure that works with nature on a watershed-scale, because we
know those are the kinds of solutions that bring multiple benefits to the economy, public health, social equity, water
quality, and wildlife. Our expertise is designing, delivering, and scaling up innovative, integrated, multibenefit
natural infrastructure programs.

The Clean Water Fellow will conduct research and analysis and generate products to support the Clean Water team
program manager and project manager.

This includes:

  • Research and synthesis on trends and best practices in sustainable, integrated water management (e.g,.
    multi-use regional stormwater parks, community benefits agreements and utility affordability programs,
    training a future-ready workforce in water).
  • Developing communication products and delivering presentations for staff and partners on these topics, and
  • Conducting outreach to inspire uptake of national best practices for water quality trading.
