Careers - Who we are

Four staff from the Grand Canyon Trust stand at a scenic overlook at Grand Canyon National Park.

We are advocates, scientists, lawyers, community activists, communicators, educators, and more. 

We show our love for the Grand Canyon and the Colorado Plateau every day through our commitment to our work and each other. Beyond our professions, we are parents, artists, farmers, athletes, traditional knowledge holders, musicians, and people of many talents and interests. We know that without diverse perspectives, ways of knowing, and backgrounds, we cannot achieve our potential as an organization. We welcome and support all identities, and respect the diversity of our staff, partners, constituencies, and communities in which we work.

Careers - location

Location, location, location

All our staff live and work in Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. We are lucky to have Grand Canyon National Park, Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments, and dozens more amazing places a few hours away. The Colorado Plateau is home to 15 Native American tribes, whose cultures, traditions, languages, and teachings continue to infuse the region today.

Diversity and inclusion

The Grand Canyon Trust is committed to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion at every level of our work. The conservation field and the Colorado Plateau have their own histories of racial injustice and exclusion and as a largely white organization, we know we have work to do. We are actively working to make the conservation field and the Colorado Plateau more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive. We are working from the inside out, starting with our internal practices, including our hiring process. We hope you’ll join us and apply today.
