Josh Tulkin, director of the Maryland Sierra Club chapter, believes students play a critical role in the environmental movement. Visiting Frostburg State University to discuss a clean energy future and sustainability, Tulkin has displayed leadership in the passage of the Maryland Offshore Wind Bill, the expansion of the Maryland Wildlands Program, the adoption of the 2015 Fracking Moratorium and the 2016 Pollinator Protection Act. His discussion will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. in Compton Science Center room 226.

Tulkin’s duty with the Sierra Club includes overseeing campaigns, fundraising and membership in Maryland. Sierra Club’s Maryland Chapter focuses on protecting the state’s natural and wildlife resources, monitoring legislation, sponsoring outings and educating the public about pressing environmental issues.

The Maryland Chapter is among 60 chapters advocating for environmental issues across the nation. The chapter promotes awareness of conservation issues and programs to support environmental stewardship by individuals, communities and government agencies. The Sierra Club also engages in politics by lobbying and advocating to elect officials and pass legislation likely to benefit the environment.

Sponsored by Sustainability Studies and the FSU Foundation Environmental Lecture Fund, the event is free and open to the public.
