About our community
At the Eastern edge of Washington’s North Cascades, the Methow Valley is a magnet for outdoor recreationists. The clear waters of the Methow River snake through a valley floor checkered with agricultural fields, all of it easy to take in from a perch atop the steep wooded slopes and rocky crags carved out by glaciers in the last ice age. Bounded by public lands on all sides, including two wilderness areas, the Methow Valley boasts more than 200 kilometers of interconnected groomed ski trails, hundreds of miles of singletrack for running, hiking, and biking, countless backroads for gravel riding and exploring, world class backcountry skiing, multiple locations for rock climbing, plus the Methow river and several lakes for fishing and water sports or a quick dip on a hot summer day. Several small towns spaced about ten miles apart are the hubs of the valley’s population, each boasting a variety of locally owned businesses. The valley’s tight-knit community connects through a vibrant collection of formal and informal groups and one of the state’s top-ranked school districts.
Inquiries are welcome and interested applicants are asked to send a resume, cover letter and contact information for three references to MVNSEF Board Director, Kent Murdoch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Initial review of applications will begin May 8, 2023, and the positions will remain open until filled.
