Our Vision and Values

Clean River Partners is an environmental non-profit based in Northfield, MN dedicated to inspiring people and organizations to value, protect, and improve the Cannon River Watershed’s land and water. In order to serve the community in constructive ways, we focus on three core values: Resilience, Equity, and Engagement.

Job Opening

Clean River Partners is searching for a growth-minded Executive Director for our nimble and growing nonprofit. Our current Executive Director and Board of Directors have a track record of consistent growth for the past seven years and are looking for the next series of future-forward efforts under new leadership. The new ED will have the full support of an energized board and a strong desire to expand upon the successes gained under our current leadership. Our outgoing ED, who is hoping to remain a supporter of our future accomplishments as she moves on in her career, hands over a robust base on which to build and leaves us in a strong position for additional growth. This is the perfect opportunity for an ED that wants to leave a lasting impact on our communities for years to come. Applications accepted through October 11, 2022.
