We Are Looking for a New Executive Director!

Our Executive Director, Gail Abrams, is retiring on June 30, 2017 and we are looking for a new Executive Director to lead us forward to our next level!  The organization has grown exponentially since Gail took over leadership of the organization in 2006.  Thanks to our dedicated staff, PWC has become a regional resource in the fields of nature education and conservation of native species.  Gail started our award winning day camp program in 2006 and we have now expanded that camp program to also include camps at William B Umstead State Park in Wake County and Blackwood Farm Park in Orange County.  Our raptor education program, also begun by Gail, uses several hawks, owls and a Mississippi kite to teach children and adults how they can help protect raptors and other wildlife. Over 31,000 people have participated in our education programs, including afterschool, homeschool, camp, and public programs since 2005 and over 17,250 people have participated in our conservation education programs during that same timeframe.  We are currently developing a new logo and website to make it easier for people to find us and engage in our programs & activities.

The number of staff has also increased over the years and is currently led by our Director of Education, Karen McCall, and our Director of Conservation, Sara Steffen.  Three other full-time staff and 2 part-time staff assist with office management, education and conservation.  Over 30 contractual staff work with us throughout the year in our camp, homeschool, afterschool and adult programs. More than 25 volunteers care for our wildlife ambassadors and 60 more assist with special events like our annual BioBlitz and Gala.

Please send cover letter, resume, references and salary requirements to pwcedsearch@gmail.com by April 17th if you are interested in leading this organization to new heights! No phone calls please. See the full job description HERE.
