Juneau, AK, US

SEACC is a small but mighty legacy nonprofit in the Tongass National Forest in Juneau, Alaska. Our growing, 6-person office is a cozy former residence in downtown Juneau, a short walk from downtown amenities. The greater Juneau region is rich with access to the outdoors, including fishing, hunting, foraging and subsistence activities, and skiing and winter sports in the wintertime. The city is famous for its rainy and dark winters (pre-ski-season), which is a consideration for those contemplating a relocation. SEACC’s compensation package is consistent with those of small, regional nonprofits. This position may be full or part-time.
