Confluence Seeks Celilo Park Project Manager

Confluence is a community-supported nonprofit that connects people to place through art and education. We work in collaboration with northwest tribes, communities and the celebrated artist Maya Lin to create reflective moments that can shape the future of the Columbia River system. We share stories of this river through six public art installations, educational programs and community engagement.

Currently, Confluence is working to complete its sixth and final art/landscape along the Columbia River system at Celilo Park near The Dalles, Oregon. This is where Celilo Falls once roared. It was a center of commerce and spiritual life for thousands of years. Celilo Falls was submerged in 1957 with the construction of The Dalles Dam. Our project goal is to develop, fabricate and install the Celilo Arc, Pavilion and other interpretive elements to revitalize Celilo Park to honor the indigenous people of the Columbia River, educate people about the rich history of Celilo Falls and strengthen the tribal presence in the public spaces along the river.

Confluence seeks a focused, energetic Project Manager to work with our small and dedicated staff to help make this project a reality. The Confluence office is located at the beautiful Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Vancouver, Washington. This is a part-time, hourly position for 30 hours per week. Wages dependent on experience. We offer medical benefits and a 401(k) match. Confluence is an equal opportunity employer and we strongly encourage applicants of all backgrounds. Ideally, this candidate would have the experience, knowledge and understanding needed to work closely with Columbia River treaty tribes.

ECOTRUST INDIGENOUS FELLOW DUE 11/30

Ecotrust invites American Indian community members who are either currently enrolled students, recent graduates, or have commensurate work experience to apply for the 2017-2018 Ecotrust Indigenous Fellowship opportunity.

Ecotrust holds a deep commitment to equity and diversity as core principles integral to the work we do. As we add new members across all levels of the organization, we seek diverse perspectives that will add richness to our evolving organization and networks.

Responsibilities:

During a 4 to 6-month time period, the Fellow will participate in a career development experience that aligns with one or more of Ecotrust’s program (Forestry, Food & Farms, Fisheries, Knowledge Systems) and/or functional teams (Communications, Finance/Operations, Development) based on the Fellow’s academic background and professional interests. They will have an opportunity to work with Ecotrust to catalyze a shift toward more resilient communities, economies, and ecosystems. The program will support the Fellow to participate through either a current project at Ecotrust (see examples below) or an Ecotrust-aligned project initiated by the Fellow. If you are interested in conducting an independent project, please write a brief description or project proposal and attach it with your application.

The Fellow will be supported and mentored throughout the program by an Ecotrust Program Director and the Fellowship Program Coordinator in activities such as developing a work plan, technical assistance, project-related questions and approaches, and the Fellow’s professional development and career goals.

Possible projects:

  • Green Workforce Development. The Green Workforce Collaborative (GWC), which includes Ecotrust and several community partners, identifies and develops job opportunities and career pathways in environmental fields for young Black and Native American adults in the greater Portland metropolitan area, focusing on four major industries: Deconstruction, Recycling/Waste Management, Green Infrastructure/Urban Forestry, and Food Systems. The Fellow will help liaise with the Native community, recruit participants, support curriculum design, and instruct/mentor participants.
  • The Redd, an initiative of Ecotrust, is a working hub for the regional food system to create a different kind of food economy. The Redd supports five anchor tenants who operate out of each space in the building (3 production kitchens, one office, a warehouse with frozen and cold storage and a co-working office upstairs). Each anchor tenant subleases out to 80+ subtenants who use the space in various forms (from storage to production to office and distribution). The Fellow would gather, track and report data from The Redd that revolves around job creation, environmental stewardship, human health, and equitable food access and work with Redd Operations Manager to formalize a Redd Metrics Reporting structure and system to implement on a regular basis.
  • Alaska Native app development. In partnership with the Hoonah Native Forest Partnership in SE Alaska, Ecotrust developed a mobile web-based tool for communication, collaboration, and interaction between landowners/managers and the community of Hoonah to collaborate on decisions about land and watershed management. The Fellow would serve as a community liaison to build the tool’s user base. The liaison will champion the tool and promote its use while providing critical feedback for iterating and improving it.
  • Fisheries Program Development in Alaska. Ecotrust is currently in the process of revitalizing both its fisheries program and Alaska-focused efforts with the hiring of a new Fisheries Program Director based in Anchorage. The Fellow would work hand-in-hand with the Fisheries Program Director to assess the landscape and develop partnerships with fishing organizations, Tribes, scientists, fishery managers and other stakeholders who can help inform the direction of the program. Areas for consideration include ownership/access to fisheries, climate change and fisheries, innovative seafood marketing opportunities (i.e. food hubs and community supported fisheries), underutilized or abandoned fishing gear, and seafood processing infrastructure.
  • Tribal Forestry: Local and Regional Economic and Workforce Development. Ecotrust’s Forests & Ecosystem Service’s team is working in partnership with the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community to begin ecological forest management in diverse forest conditions across the Swinomish Reservation. Potential Fellow activities could be tailored based on experience and interest to include, for example: scoping of a program to meet local firewood needs entirely for Swinomish forestland; participation in planning, outreach, and engagement for FireWise community activities; exploration of the potential for apprenticeship and work-study options to train and recruit the next generation of tribal forest stewards; or field-based involvement in forest operations, inventory, and monitoring activities. A broader project in collaboration with the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians and Intertribal Timber Council is also an option researching the needs and opportunities for regional workforce development in tribal natural resource management.
