We are offering a unique opportunity to gain some invaluable work experience with the Forest Service and to get a better understanding of how the Forest Service operates.

 

I can offer two students or recent graduates (Biology, Environmental Sciences, Forestry or related subjects) a summer internship or independent study (depending upon your school) working in the wildlife department. We have a vibrant wildlife department that includes habitat restoration and maintenance, invasive species management, rare plant species plantings and maintenance, building in stream trout structures and educational outreach. You will also get the opportunity to help survey for bats (mist netting and acoustic), conduct fish surveys and possibly acoustic bird monitoring (depending upon start date). Additionally you may assist the recreation department to gain knowledge of how that department operates.

 

I am fluid in regards to your schedule but envision approximately three days a week for the summer season. You can start after school is out and end before it begins. Each week may change depending upon what we are doing, where you are needed and what you wish to participate in.

 

There is no stipend available for this position, but you will gain valuable experience and meet many people within the Forest Service and our partners!
