Education & Experience Requirements
Director of Federal Trails and Tribal Lands Policy
Trust for Public Land (TPL) is a national nonprofit that works to connect everyone to the benefits and joys of the outdoors. As a leader in equitable access to the outdoors, TPL works with communities to create parks and protect public land where they are needed most. Since 1972, TPL has protected more than 3 million acres of public land, created more than 5,000 parks, trails, schoolyards, and iconic outdoor places, raised $93billion in public funding for parks and public lands, and connected more than 9 million people to the outdoors.
TheDirector ofFederal Trails and Tribal Lands Policy isthefederal point person onTPL’sTrails Initiative and our federal lead on our Tribal Lands.
Trails are one of TPL’s four Initiatives, along with Parks, Schoolyards, and Lands. Trails, both for recreation and zero carbon transportation, provide mental and physical health benefits, climate resilience, and the social benefits of connecting communities. But everyone doesn’thave the same access to nature. Historically, there is a significant inequity, with high income or majority white neighborhoods having more access to safe and quality open space than low-income and majority minority communities.
Over our history, TPL has partnered with over 70 tribes to return over 200,000 acres to those communities. We’re currently working with numerous Indigenous communities -- from Delaware to Hawaii – on land acquisition projects. Additionally, TPL is working with the Bureau of Indian Education to pilot green schoolyards at Indigenous schools and we’re exploring policy solutions that can expand Tribal access to land ownership and funding. We believe that all Tribes and Indigenous communities should have a homeland where they can thrive and where every member can receive the benefits of access to nature, the outdoors, and their culture.
