The Nature Conservancy External Affairs Program

This is a volunteer opportunity for the External Affairs Program via remote work in Los Angeles, California. 

The Nature Conservancy is working in Los Angeles, the second-largest city in the United States, to demonstrate what nature can do for cities—and what cities can do for nature. Though California is known for its iconic natural and rural beauty, nearly 95 percent of residents currently live in urban areas. In the coming years, billions of dollars will be invested to upgrade infrastructure in the urban environment, and we have the opportunity to integrate nature into this development.

The Conservancy is focused on using vegetated nature-based solutions—infrastructure based on natural systems and processes—to transform how stormwater is managed, which could help address Los Angeles’ water quality and water supply challenges. Examples of nature-based solutions include raingardens and constructed wetlands. These approaches can provide clean water and additional benefits such as habitat, flood protection, and clean air.

By using nature-based solutions to increase biodiversity, reconnect urban communities with nature and secure Los Angeles’ water future, we are creating a new model for urban conservation. The Conservancy is driving change in four major areas: policy, market solutions, science and on-the-ground projects.

The Los Angeles Staff work on a wide variety of projects, these include urban conservation, environmental policy, biodiversity and stormwater assessments and strategy. External Affairs Staff in Los Angeles provide policy support to programs and conduct legislative outreach. On occasion, there are short-term projects that would benefit from additional help beyond the work that Staff does. Volunteers work on these types of projects. Examples of current volunteer projects are listed below:

  • Research to assist the Conservancy’s policy priorities and Urban Conservation Program in Greater Los Angeles
  • Research to assist Southern California policy engagements
  • Volunteer-driven research or policy analysis project
  • Varied other tasks that Staff may identify as helpful
  • Develop outreach materials and communications
  • Support coalition efforts
