Edmonton Forest School Society (EFSS) is a not-for-profit society that aims to connect Edmontonians to our incredible River Valley.
We are a group of parents, teachers, and community members who came together to ensure our children, the next generation, become resilient, empathetic, adventurous environmental stewards who care and protect our greatest resource; the natural world.
EFSS Board of Directors is seeking a passionate, organized, leader to be our president!
The president chairs monthly board and executive committee meetings, working with our small team of staff and board members to coordinate committee work. We are looking for someone who has the energy to unite our board around our mission! See the full job description below. We are a volunteer, working board.
