Conservation and Land Management Internship Program

 

 We are currently seeking an Exotic Plant Management Team Intern at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska. Click here for details. Please apply by April 27th, 5:00PM central to be considered.

 

Thank you for your interest in our program.  We do have a few positions remaining to fill.  They have a strong botany focus and require excellent plant ID skills, including identifying angiosperms and conifers to the genus or species level. The application portal for the 2016 field season will open Oct/Nov 2015.

 

Each year, the Conservation and Land Management (CLM) internship program places 75-100 graduates from colleges and universities across the country in five-month paid internships to assist biologists and other professional staff who work with a variety of federal agencies as well as non-profits focused on conservation efforts. In 2015, approximately 60 - 80 internships will be based in the western US (AK, AZ, CA, CO, ID, OR, MT, NM, NV, UT, WA, and WY) and 10 - 20 positions will be based on the East Coast (MA, NY, and NC). The federal agencies we partner with include the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS), U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and others. Non-profit partners include the New England Wild Flower Society, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Seed Bank, North Carolina Botanical Garden and the Rae Selling Berry Seed Bank.

Beginning in 2001, the program has successfully placed over 800 interns, providing them with a rich experience from which to launch their professional careers.

CLM internships provide hands-on opportunities in botany and/or wildlife-related fields that may include monitoring or assessing threatened and endangered species and habitats.
