We take pride in CRA’s 50-year reputation as a leader in conservation, collaboration, and fundraising for on-the-ground projects that benefit communities and natural resources.  We’re the ones behind the unprecedented restoration of the world-class Pere Marquette River; more recent dam removals, including the largest in Michigan’s history on the Boardman River; extensive improvement of road and bridge infrastructure to benefit precious cold water streams; and the new Wild Roots initiative that aims to reforest northern Michigan.  The passionate professionals at CRA lead this work in a culture of empowerment, enjoying exceptional flexibility and autonomy; we promote deep collaboration and balanced, practical solutions that are based on sound science. Our staff, board, and supporters include the most avid anglers, hunters, paddlers and recreationists in the Great Lakes. We are seeking a capable and energetic Development Director to join us.  Learn more about the job here.
CRA offers a casual environment, full employee benefits, and super-rewarding work, all from our headquarters in spectacular Traverse City, Michigan.  Our office, in the Bayview Professional Centre, is perched on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay and offers a coffee shop, executive conference room, and exercise facility.   

Please apply in confidence with full resume and cover letter telling us why you make an outstanding candidate and what it is about this opportunity that most excites you.  Please send your materials to info@rivercare.org using the subject line “Development Director Application,” or mail materials to CRA’s address:  10850 E. Traverse Hwy., Suite 1180, Traverse City, MI 49684.  No phone inquiries please.  Selected candidates will be required to provide references and transcripts.

CRA Receives Planet Award
On Earth Day, Consumers Energy Foundation gave CRA a Planet Award, which supports projects that significantly impact Michigan’s natural resources. We received $150,000 for the Wild Roots initiative, which aims to plant 100,000 native trees and shrubs over the next five years. The Planet Awards are the first of three $500,000 grant allocations in 2019, totaling $1.5 million.
CRA Sets Wild Roots
CRA is excited to kick-off a large-scale reforestation program this April, Wild Roots. The program will complement our flagship stream restoration work by planting over 10,000 native trees and shrubs in recently restored riparian areas.

 
2019 Seedling Give-A-Way for Donors

Reconnecting the North Branch of the Platte River
The Platte River's largest tributary, the North Branch, is known for having cold temperatures and a heavily forested, publicly owned corridor. However, the exquisite wildlife habitat in this stream is currently threatened by poorly constructed road/stream crossings. By reconnecting fragmented sections of the river, we can help to keep this unique ecosystem intact.
 
Wrapping Up 2018 with the Return of a River
The Boardman River, originally known as the Ottaway River, is meandering over land once again with the removal of Sabin Dam. The channel was set in its final alignment on December 12 and is now flowing freely where the powerhouse once stood.
