NatureBridge, the largest educational partner of the National Park Service, seeks innovative, thoughtful and influential volunteer board members to help meet new challenges and achieve new summits in support of young people, conservation and environmental education.

Since its founding in 1971, NatureBridge has grown to connect over 30,000 students and 700 schools annually to the outdoors through immersive experiences in multiple national parks across the country. NatureBridge’s mission to connect young people to the wonder and science of the natural world comes alive in national park classrooms at Yosemite National Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California, Olympic National Park in Washington and Prince William Forest Park in Virginia. Collectively, NatureBridge has reached over 1.6 million young people, igniting their self-discovery and inspiring them to become stewards of the environment.

The NatureBridge Board of Directors plays a vital role by providing vision, expertise, guidance and resources to scale impact and ensure NatureBridge remains at the forefront of sustainable environmental education. To expand its reach and impact, NatureBridge looks for forward-thinking leaders who have a pulse on new ideas and bring practical and innovative approaches to redefining “business as usual.” 

NatureBridge’s mission is rooted in building connections between people and places to inspire and equip young people to better care for each other and nature. NatureBridge believes that to fully meet its mission, it must intentionally and mindfully engage in equity, inclusion and diversity efforts. NatureBridge prioritizes recruiting and engaging a board that brings different ideas, and practices respectful debate and thoughtful resolution.

A deeply engaged, entrepreneurial, empathetic, inclusive and collaborative board is necessary for NatureBridge’s long-term success. The organization seeks multiple individuals eager to collaborate with and elevate NatureBridge to reach new heights and shape the next phase of its journey.
