Sierra Club – Social Media Intern

The Many Rivers Group, Sierra Club’s mission is to educate the community about the importance of conserving local forest. I led the Hardesty Wildlands Campaign social media strategies and assisted in organizing fundraisers around the campaign. In addition, I researched the history of Hardesty wilderness and interviewed local author Bill Sullivan, best known for his hiking guide books, who affirmed the recreational benefits and need to protect the closest wilderness to Eugene, Springfield, and surrounding communities. At a local meeting with Nick Batz from Congressman Peter DeFazio’s office,  I acted as student representative to propose federal protection of Hardesty wilderness.
