Conservation Halton protects, restores and manages the natural resources in the Halton watershed, but we have grown to become so much more. Today, we protect our communities and conserve our natural environment through planning, education and recreation and support our partners in the creation of sustainable communities within our watershed. Our strategic plan, Metamorphosis, continues to drive us to embrace more innovative ideas to communicate and collaborate more effectively, create the capacity for us to form new partnerships and position us to become leaders in conservation. We are looking to build our team with the kind of inspired, ambitious people that aren’t satisfied with the status quo, that see the opportunity in every challenge, are driven by measurable results and thrive in a busy work environment. If you are looking to join an environmentally-focused, socially-conscious community organization, then we are looking for you!
