The Wildwoods Foundation has a two-decade track record of providing nature-based programs to children and families across Los Angeles. Motivated by the tragic school shooting at Columbine, our programs use ecology and the outdoor experience as a framework for human relations programs that help build stronger, more resilient families and more equitable and more sustainable communities.
Now, in the midst of a pandemic, we have pivoted to meet the most urgent needs of our constituents, and have migrated our programming online to a virtual format. Rather than a hindrance, this challenge has pushed us to develop new skill sets and embrace technology to provide the most engaging online experience possible for children.
We realize that this opens up a whole new market for our programs. We plan to build upon our existing work in the digital platform and expand to serve more children in more places as we build our capacity.
We are looking for motivated, responsible, individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit to help us smartly grow the organization, keeping an eye on sustainability. Ideal candidates should have previous board service and fundraising experience in addition to well-developed senses of both adventure and humor.
If you think you're a fit, we'd like to hear from you. Please send an email or give us a call.

The mission of the Wildwoods Foundation is to equip the children, families, and educators of Los Angeles to practice the principles of ecoliteracy in creating sustainable, harmonious communities.
Founded in the aftermath of the tragic school shooting at Columbine, the Wildwoods Foundation uses ecology as a springboard to help young people understand that the principles governing nature's ecosystems -interdependence, diversity and sustainability- are just as important to the social fabric of our schools, communities and workplaces.
Now a part of the Magnolia Community Initiative, a collective impact project of 75 agencies and organizations serving 500 blocks between downtown Los Angeles and the USC campus, Wildwoods is contributing to the resiliency of families by providing increased access to nature.
