Conservation and Land Management Internship

Will open October/November 2015

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.
