Conservation and Land Management Internship Program


Now accepting applications for the 2015 field season! 


The CLM Internship Program reviews applications on a rolling basis. Apply early for your best chances of being considered for one of our 2015 internships. We will accept applications through January 15, 2015.

Please note that our deadline to submit the application is Friday January 15th. A gentle reminder that when you submit your application, an email is sent to each of your references with details on how to upload their letter of recommendation – we ask them to submit their letter within two weeks of receiving that email. In addition, due to the volume of applications we are receiving, it may take a day or two longer than normal for your transcript to be uploaded to your application. You will receive a confirmation email when each of your letters has been submitted and when your transcript has been added to your files.  Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to seeing your application in the near future!

We are actively reviewing applications and have begun extending interviews to applicants.  We will be contacting applicants with start date availability of Jan/Feb first, followed by March/April, followed by May/June.


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.
