Trout Unlimited (TU), North America's leading coldwater fisheries conservation organization, works to protect, restore and reconnect critical trout and salmon habitat throughout the West. In the West, intact fish and game habitat translates directly into quality hunting and fishing. Trout Unlimited's Sportsmen's Conservation Project (SCP) works to protect intact landscapes from threats, such as irresponsible energy development, that would degrade quality habitat and put in jeopardy our irreplaceable hunting and fishing heritage.

We are seeking a staff member to coordinate wind and solar energy work for the SCP, a TU program with approximately 25 staff members located throughout the West. The goal of TU's energy project is to balance development with habitat conservation. Educating, organizing and mobilizing fellow anglers and hunters is the primary strategy employed to achieve conservation goals. The Renewable Energy Coordinator also will be part of the organization's national Energy Team, which develops and executes TU's national energy strategy and ensures consistency across programs. The Renewable Energy Coordinator will report to the SCP Energy Director.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Organize hunter/anglers, local businesses and community leaders to champion the Public Lands Renewable Energy Development Act of 2011 (S. 1775) as well as other policy initiatives.
  • With SCP's Energy Director, refine and strengthen TU's strategic vision for wind and solar renewable energy development on public lands.
  • Participate on TU's national Energy Team to coordinate wind and solar energy work throughout TU and advance organization-wide objectives.
  • Engage in, or assist other TU staff to engage in, select place-based wind and solar energy planning and advocacy projects to protect coldwater fish habitat.
  • Develop partnerships with wind and solar energy companies to demonstrate where and how these resources can be developed responsibly.


  • A college degree
  • Professional experience in natural resource management and/or advocacy
  • Demonstrated team-building skills and a passion for organizing people to achieve a common goal; issue campaign experience a big plus
  • Understanding of rural Western communities, including political and economic conditions and the region's fishing and hunting tradition
  • Passion for protecting fish and wildlife habitat and angling and hunting opportunities; ability to relate to anglers and hunters
  • Understanding of wind and solar energy and the impacts of their development; knowledge of wind and solar industry a big plus
  • Demonstrated ability to work respectfully with diverse interests to solve problems
  • Excellent oral and written communications skills
  • Ability to work independently
  • Strong team ethic
  • Willingness and ability to travel throughout the West and occasionally to Washington D.C.
  • Media experience a plus

Location of the position is flexible, as long as it is in an area of the western United States with reasonable access to an airport. Co-location with existing TU staff preferred. Competitive benefits and salary. TU is an equal opportunity employer.
