Farmers Conservation Alliance is a 501(c)3 organization that operates at the intersection of water, energy, and agriculture. The work of the GIS Specialist will encompass data management, map production, spatial analysis, and field data collection.
WHEN YOU WORK FOR US, HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL FIND
Our staff of 20 engineers, scientists, public policy experts, and strategy consultants believe that everyone can win –farmers, rivers, and communities. We formed 13 years ago to successfully bring an innovative fish screen technology to market. This farmer-developed technology, now known as the Farmers Screen, helps to keep fish and debris in rivers and out of water supplies.
Since that time, our work has expanded to help farmers modernize all aspects of their water delivery systems and to apply the Farmers Screen technology across all sectors. Staff work with water users, agencies, and organizations to design, finance, and implement large-scale solutions and technologies that improve water supplies, reduce operation and maintenance costs, and generate fish-friendly hydropower.
Our headquarters in Hood River, Oregon, inspires staff in both their professional and personal lives. Hood River’s abundant apple, pear, and cherry orchards and salmon-bearing streams provide daily context for our work. The Columbia River Gorge and nearby Mt. Hood provide endless opportunities for hiking, paddling, cycling, skiing, and kiteboarding. Hood River’s 1-hour commute to Portland lets staff live in a small, family-friendly town while also having easy access to all of the amenities that the city has to offer.
