Location: San Francisco, California
Number of Employees: 175
Digs: California’s National Parks—seriously. Administrative staff work in offices within the national parks, many of which are historic buildings, and field workers lead trips, often in the backcountry. All of them, naturally, have access to hiking trails, lakes, rivers, and the Pacific Ocean.
Culture: People who love the natural environment and people who love sharing it—that’s who works at NatureBridge. Naturally, those people enjoy outdoor adventures during their free time, including climbing, backpacking, and other outdoor pursuits.
Sweet Perks: Each year a NatureBridge staff member is awarded one or more grants that allow them to pursue a lifelong journey. One awardee spent two and a half months exploring and experiencing the biology and culture of Tanzania. Another employee embarked on a solo journey from the source of the Merced River to its confluence with the San Joaquin River.
Now Hiring: Development associate, kitchen assistant, grants manager, field science educator
