Direct one of our state offices, and help to protect the places we love and promote the core environmental values most Americans share: Clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and clean energy to power our lives.
We’re expanding our state directing team to have a presence in 33 states, and we’re looking for highly qualified, driven and passionate candidates to run one of our state offices, and direct the environmental program.
Through Environment New Hampshire, we are protecting the air, water and land that we all love. From the White Mountains to the Seacoast, New Hampshire is full of special places that are worth protecting. Recently, we celebrated a major victory when President Obama restored clean water protections to more than half of the nation’s streams, which feed drinking water sources for one in three Americans. Now, we’re working to strengthen the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a nation-leading program to cut carbon pollution from power plants, and make sure Senators Hassan and Shaheen stand up against President Trump’s environmental rollbacks.
