About Us

Heart of the Rockies Initiative (“Heart of the Rockies”) is a transboundary organization that works to ensure connected habitat and working lands for people and wildlife by increasing the pace of durable conservation in the Central Rockies of North America. A partnership of 27 land trusts working across five U.S. states and two Canadian provinces, we envision a region where actively engaged people and communities work together across geographic and organizational boundaries to protect, restore, and steward the lands and waters that sustain natural systems and support community livelihoods. We know that we’ll only achieve our mission and vision by hiring and creating an inclusive space for a diverse staff that reflects the communities across the landscape in which we work.

Over the next two years, the Manager will scale this program from being primarily focused on western Montana to addressing rural development needs in communities throughout the Heart of the Rockies region.
