The Sierra Club is a nonprofit organization that focuses on protecting natural and wildlife resources, monitoring legislation, and educating the public about environmental issues. You do not necessarily have to be an environmental major to be involved with the Sierra Club- we are looking for students within any major that are willing to work hard, learn about the issues, and to bring new ideas and enthusiasm to their work.
The Maryland Sierra Club is seeking interns for Winter and Spring 2016. If you could forward this email to students or post the below internship description to any relevant listservs, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
