Learn more about this agency


This position serves as the Chief of Planning, Science and Resources Management at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, reporting to the Superintendent's office. The recreation area encompasses 153,000 acres of mountain and coastal resources within the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area of southern California. It was authorized by Congress in 1978 to preserve rare, Mediterranean-type ecosystems and to provide recreational, educational, and public health benefits for the people of southern California and the nation.

The recreation area is located in a rapidly developing region of 18 million people: one in 18 Americans lives within one hour of the recreation area's boundary. The recreation area boundary includes 12 incorporated cities within Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Multiple agencies work together inside and adjacent to the park boundary to carry out a comprehensive and exciting program of conservation actions. The intensely urban environment and the complexity of economic and political influences require that the incumbent have an exceptional scope and degree of sensitivity and expertise in carrying out planning, science and resource management responsibilities.

Due to the number and variety of landowners within the park boundary, providing for appropriate resources protection requires a high level of cooperation with other land management agencies, municipal and state governments, academic institutions, and private landowners.
