EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: The National Eagle Center, today’s leading organization dedicated solely to eagles and their relationships with the natural world and human cultures, seeks an enthusiastic and highly ambitious senior-level candidate for the position of Executive Director.

Reporting to the board of directors, this newly created position will be responsible for all strategic and operational aspects of this fast-growing, highly visible organization.

The National Eagle Center, a 501c(3) not-for-profit corporation, was founded in 1989 by a group of highly dedicated volunteers and has operated continuously since that time. The organization’s goal is to explore the importance of eagles to human cultures throughout history and to ensure long-term sustainability of native eagle populations through a wide variety of educational and experiential programming. Situated on the banks of the Mississippi River in historic Wabasha, Minnesota, the National Eagle Center enjoys a breathtaking location in the heart of the picturesque Hiawatha Valley, and serves as enthusiastic host to the highest number of wintering bald eagles found anywhere in the lower forty-eight states.

If you are ready to assume an executive leadership position with a nationally-prominent organization, yet appreciate the healthy rewards of an outdoor lifestyle and small-town living, this is the ideal opportunity for you.
