Dear Friends, 

With a mix of reflection and gratitude, I wish to announce that I will be resigning as the Executive Director of Borderlands Restoration Network. I am grateful for the valuable experiences and friendships I gained during my time with the organization.

I feel proud of all that we have accomplished together over the past five years, from the hundreds of local youth we have inspired to make positive impacts in their home watersheds, to the thousands of structures we have constructed building soil and capturing rainwater, to the hundreds of thousands of native plants we have produced for regional planting efforts. 

Further, I feel confident that our new Strategic Plan has set a solid path for the organization for the next five years as we work to help grow a regional restorative economy. 

My last day will be Friday, January 20, at which point a successor or interim Executive Director will be named. Until then, I plan to work with the board to continue to oversee the process of permanently filling the position. I am confident we can make this a smooth transition for our staff, partners, and supporters.

Please help us find our next Executive Director by sharing the job description and posting announcement.


Kurt Vaughn

Executive Director
