Watershed Steward Job opportunities in Adirondack Park

Subject: [NEES] Watershed Steward Job opportunities in Adirondack Park

Please forward to students in your Environmental Studies programs. Thank you.

Paul Smith’s College Watershed Stewardship Program is looking for up to 20 Watershed Stewards this summer, in locations in the Tri Lakes and as far away as Saratoga Lake, Old Forge and Cranberry Lake. The job entails educating the public about aquatic invasive species and performing boat inspections to prevent transport of plant fragments or small organisms such as zebra mussels. This is a paid position ($11.50/hr) in the natural resources management field. It runs from the week prior to Memorial Day through Labor Day. The job is a great resume builder for students in environmental majors. It also is relevant to students studying recreation (public education). Applicants who are not students are also encouraged to apply; preference will be given for college degrees in a related field. This is challenging job that requires dedication and the ability to fill the time between visitors productively. This is not a position for everybody- only dedicated, professional and self-disciplined people will do well in it. Feel free to contact me if you have questions, and I look forward to reviewing applications in the upcoming weeks.

Subject: [ECN] Beijing Study Abroad Program–Focus on Environmental Communication

Hi All,

Please share this opportunity with your students. Thanks.

Communication in Beijing: A Study Abroad program (May15-June 15)

China?s global importance continues to grow exponentially. This is true in terms of economics, but it is also true in other areas, including the environment and culture. As China?s political and cultural capital, Beijing is the best place to experience China?s dizzying transformation and enduring history. This summer program would provide students a rich, multifaceted experience in China. Since this would not be a language-based experience, the program would be open to students not planning on learning Chinese. We are offering two 3 credit courses: Strategic Communication and Media Campaigns. These courses are useful for students interested in environmental campaigns, social media, public relations, advertising, political campaigns, and mass media. Specifically, these courses would be beneficial to majors in Communication, Business, Political Science, Asian Studies, and Environmental Studies. Since China is an economic power, Beijing is awash in strategic communication and media campaigns. By living in Beijing students will be immersed in Beijing?s exciting media environment, which includes Chinese and international public relations/advertising companies and environmental NGOs. Through our contacts in Beijing, we will arrange for students to learn both on-site and in the classroom from strategic communication professionals and environmental activists. The program will be hosted on the beautiful campus of China?s renowned Beijing University.
We will enhance students? class experience through cultural outings, including visiting the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, Beijing Opera, the Olympics Bird?s Nest, the ancient Tanzhe Mountain Temple, and the many parks around Beijing.
The program will be led by Dr. Kevin DeLuca and Dr. Ye Sun and is open to undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation (Cost-$2800). For more information, please see

Hi Dr. Commito,

My name is Anna, and I am one of the recruiters this season for A Christian Ministry in the National Parks (www.acmnp.com). I wanted to let you know that I will be coming out to Gettysburg on  Wednesday, February 23 to meet with students and make our summer opportunities known and available.

I saw that you are a professor in and chair of the Environmental Studies department and was wondering if this type of opportunity might be something your students are interested in as they will have the opportunity to work, live, and worship in a national park for a summer. If this is something that seems to be a good fit, I would be more than happy to come for a minute or two to your classes to inform students about this opportunity. We placed 170 students in national parks last year, and I would love to keep this tradition going for your students!  Any thoughts or suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated.

I hope this message finds you well, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Blessings to you,

Anna
