Jennifer Ferenstein
Missoula, Montana


Two new graduate students strike up a conversation in the Environmental Studies office a few days before term begins. The ongoing conversations which ensued between fellow grad students Jennifer Ferenstein and Anne Devine later proved to root the deep philosophical foundation for GreenScene Media.

Since completing her Masters in Environmental Studies, Jennifer has worked with the Alliance for the Wild Rockies and acted as the Columbia Basin organizer for the Northwest Ecosystem Alliance in Bellingham, WA.

Last year she conducted fieldwork with the Great Grizzly Search in the Great Burn proposed wilderness area of Montana. Previously she concentrated on the endangered species listing of the lynx, and could be known as the underdog for the prarie dog with her production credits on the video documentary "Varmint". An outspoken environmental advocate, she has also published articles, lectured, and participated in conferences.

Jennifer is President of the Sierra Club. She was first elected to Sierra Club's national Board of Directors in 1998. Prior to her election to the national board, Jennifer was a member of the Sierra Club's state and Missoula executive committees.
