I love New England. I grew up on the absolute southern edge of the region, but I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying the natural resources in all six of its states (mostly through fly fishing). One thing that is interesting about New England is that the areas surrounding some of its most sensitive ecosystems are quite populated. That means that they’re constantly being infringed upon. Conservation Law Foundation is a Boston, MA based non-profit that believes “that healthy communities and a clean environment are a right for all New Englanders, not a privilege for the few.” Since 1966 they have used a combination of scientific research, business/market forces, and legal work to protect “all parts of New England’s environment, including everything from oceans to river to mountains, from parks to forests, from big cities to small towns, from Maine to Rhode Island.”
When I hear the word conservation, I immediately think of middle-aged people dressed in all khaki participating in some sort of manual labor focused cleanup effort. While that’s certainly part of it, the reality is that much of the most important conservation work happens in the courtroom. Whether it’s Clean Energy & Climate Change, Ocean Conservation, Clean Water, Healthy Forests, or Healthy Communities (all of CLF’s focus areas), using the law is often the best vehicle for making “New England a better place to live, work, and play for everyone.” Take a look at CLF’s Work to see what they’ve done and what they’re doing. It’s amazing how many pressing issues there are, and yet CLF appears to be on top of all of them. If you’d like to join CLF in protecting New England’s natural resources, visit their Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Development Assistant, and the position looks great for a new or recent grad.
