Policy, outreach, legal with FOR staff

Friends of the River offers spring policy and outreach internships with our policy and outreach staff as well as a summer legal internship program supervised by our Senior Legal Counsel.

FOR takes the lead in protecting California’s rivers. In just one of our recent cases, we have been fighting to protect the trees that line the rivers and levees of the state. These trees and shrubs provide a significant share of the state’s riparian habitat and need our protection from a misguided attempt by the federal government to clear-cut them all. The internship will work doing legal research, citing cases, and helping to prepare the legal team for motions, hearings and trial. Law school students preferred and multiple openings during the summer.

For more information on internship opportunities: Contact our Senior Legal Counsel, Bob Wright at bwright@friendsoftheriver.org or 916-442-3155 Ext 207.
