Zion Forever Project Announces Search for New Board Members

SPRINGDALE, UTAH, MAY 29th, 2024 — Zion Forever Project extends an invitation to join the search for 4 to 6 new board members who share in the belief that the sacred and significant landscapes and resources of Zion National Park will not take care of themselves. To prosper and remain vital, these landscapes must have a community of supporters reflecting all walks of life, experiences, and circumstances who care deeply for their future. We seek a diverse, passionate, and innovative cohort to join our board and help make a tangible impact in one of America’s most cherished national parks’ philanthropic, creative collaboration, and conservation efforts.

Zion National Park Forever Project has epitomized a legacy of dedication and passion for conserving and enhancing Zion National Park and its surrounding landscape for almost a century. The organization is committed to environmental stewardship and integrating all efforts under one banner to address future park challenges and ensure its sustainable future where all individuals can experience Zion’s awe-inspiring beauty and become lifelong advocates for its conservation.

“Since 1929, our friends at the Zion National Park Forever Project have been working side by side with the National Park Service to enhance the park experience for all visitors. Today, as park needs continue to grow, we are excited that our park partner continues to support us with their rapidly expanding mission,”  says Jeff Bradybaugh, Superintendent.

Zion National Park conserves some of the most sacred and important canyon country in the world and has been a sanctuary for humans, plants, and animals since time immemorial. It is the holy center of a cultural landscape that connects north to Cedar Breaks National Monument, east and west to Color Country Public Lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, and south to Pipe Spring National Monument, the Arizona Strip, and the Shivwits Plateau.

As a Zion Forever Project board member, you will be instrumental in providing strategic oversight, advising with your domain expertise, and leveraging your connections to expand our network of changemakers. Your role will be crucial in collaborative efforts with federal agencies, gateway communities, and guests to create connections to the Zion regional landscape that will lead to lifelong stewardship. By establishing business and agency partnerships, encouraging collaborative innovation, expanding educational opportunities, funding tangible projects, and leveraging resources, the Zion Forever Project is building the next generation of leaders and stewards.

We seek individuals with enthusiasm for protecting that National Park and public lands experience and who are willing to actively engage with our mission, enhance our efforts through internal collaboration, champion new and existing partnerships, and utilize their networks to further our goals. If you are ready to join us in our mission to protect and preserve Zion National Park area, we encourage you to apply today.
