    A thriving future for California’s environment and communities requires bold vision, creative problem-solving, and relentless determination. This is a critical decade for action and River Partners is growing our team of talented, dedicated change-makers to meet the challenge head on. Join us! 

    Who We Are
    River Partners brings life back to California rivers. We’ve revitalized more habitat along impaired California rivers than any other entity in the western U.S., having led hundreds of projects across nearly 20,000 acres throughout California. We restore thriving native forests and ecosystems that support imperiled wildlife, improve flood safety, boost the state’s climate resilience, replenish and improve freshwater resources, create open space for communities, and build stronger local economies. Since 1998, we have pioneered an innovative, entrepreneurial approach to conservation, combining modern farming, cutting-edge science, and diverse partnerships.

    We are meeting the urgent need this decade to restore our riverways and seek passionate team members to help us grow our restoration footprint at an unprecedented pace and scale

    Why We Do It
    Healthy rivers are California’s essential arteries that sustain our food systems, economies, communities, and wildlife found nowhere else on Earth. Our riverways support more species and in greater numbers than any other ecosystem in California—making our state a worldwide biodiversity hotspot.

    Yet just 5% of our native riverside habitat remains.

    State and federal commitments call for exponentially increasing the pace and scale of river ecosystem repair to adapt to accelerating climate impacts. With their critical role in sustaining wildlife, natural resources, and communities, healthy rivers are essential for a flourishing Golden State. The actions we take to restore our riverways during this decade will decide California's future for generations to come.

    Why You Should Join Us
    River Partners offers competitive salaries and benefits, including comprehensive health care insurance, flexible spending accounts, a 401(k) plan with immediate employer matching, paid time off, life insurance, disability coverage, employee assistance programs, and other well-being benefits.
