American Forests’ No. 1 goal is “to grow a healthier world”—a lofty aim for any organization. Then again, American Forests is America’s oldest nonprofit citizens’ conservation organization, dating all the way back to 1875. The organization strives to enable communities, corporations, individuals, schools and government groups to apply strategic environmental solutions. Your community may even have been “ReLeafed” through their recent campaigns, Tree Planting for Environmental Restoration and Reversing the National Urban Tree Deficit.
American Forests offers internships in many different departments—communications, marketing and development, forest policy, global releaf and urban ecosystems. Intern tasks may include writing press releases, planning events, developing material on the importance of forests, establishing tree planting partnerships with schools and businesses and helping to plan workshops.
