The Verde River is one of the last remaining healthy, perennially flowing rivers left in the arid desert state of Arizona. The Verde River system, including its connected streams, creeks and groundwater resources, supports the economies of rural Verde Valley communities and businesses both as a vital water supply and as a driver of tourism and recreation. Friends of Verde River Greenway (Friends) is a nonprofit conservation organization that has been working collaboratively at the local level for the past decade to restore and sustain river flows, and restore riparian habitat, while building community connections to the Verde River and its tributaries. Friends has been experiencing significant growth and expansion in the scope of its programs and funding. As a result, Friends is seeking a talented and dedicated executive-level leader to carry its mission forward to the next level.

Friends offices are located in Cottonwood, Arizona, a community in the vibrant Verde Valley of central Arizona. Recently honored as one of only twenty National Geographic "geotourism" destinations, the Sedona-Verde Valley area is home to spectacular natural resources, friendly small-town communities, and abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. The region boasts a blossoming local wine industry, rich historic cultural resources and heritage, excellent local restaurants, and nationally recognized festivals and events. From the verdant oasis of the Verde River flowing through Clarkdale, Cottonwood and Camp Verde - to the magnificent red rocks of Sedona - the Verde Valley is a special place, offering an extraordinary quality of life.
