Board & Staff
Join the Board!
Habitat Harmony, Inc. is looking for individuals who would like to serve on our Board of Directors. Habitat Harmony is a tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation founded upon the recognition of the inherent value of the natural world. Our mission is to assist humans to live in harmony with wildlife. Learn more about our programs.
This goal is reflected in the following activity areas: education; public policy advocacy; habitat improvement and preservation; and relocation and alternative care for displaced wildlife. Our focus has been the prairie ecosystem of northern Arizona, with much of our resources devoted to protecting prairie dogs.
Our all-volunteer Board of Directors meets four times annually. We set direction for the organization, conduct research, raise funds, lead and assist with wildlife relocations, provide public and school education programs, conduct community outreach, participate in public decision-making processes that affect wildlife, and, until staff is hired, conduct all administrative work for the organization.
It is our policy to seek consensus, and to build cooperative relationships. It is our goal to pursue our mission in a manner that promotes a sense of community. We believe that greater good may be accomplished by a respectful approach to issues.
A Director’s responsibilities include but are not limited to:
- Attend board meetings four times a year or more often if necessary.
- Maintain communication with the board and staff; be available by phone and email. Commit at least 5 hours a month to the organization. Board members may be expected to commit more times as special projects arise.
- Be responsible for the Habitat Harmony budget and actively participate in fundraising to meet that budget.
- Be responsible for knowing, approving and implementing all organizational policies.
Our Directors represent the organization in the community and, at all times, prioritize the best interests of the organization. Please fill out our Board application if you share our passion for helping humans to live in harmony with wildlife and would like to serve on our Board.
