A great internship opportunity for next summer…paid too!
The Conservation and Land Management Internship Program is now accepting applications for 2016! Please apply online at http://www.clminternship.org/applying.
Would you like to put your education to use assisting in important conservation projects? Do you like to experience new landscapes, habitats, and species diversity? The CLM Internship Program is a wonderful opportunity to begin a career in botany, wildlife biology, natural resource management and conservation!
Each year, the Conservation and Land Management Internship Program places 75-100 college graduates in five-month paid internships to assist biologists with our federal and non-profit partners.
In 2016, 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.
Each internship is unique and may focus on botany, wildlife, or a combination of the two. The majority of our internships have a heavy emphasis on botany. Interns assist in a wide variety of projects depending on the needs of their field office. Examples of projects include: collecting seed for restoration and conservation purposes, performing surveys for threatened and endangered species and habitats, and collecting data on species reintroduction and habitat management experiments. Applicants with strong botany experience are especially encouraged to apply!
Benefits of the CLM Internship Program are numerous. As a CLM intern, you will receive a stipend paid every two weeks totaling $13,200 over 5 months and will attend an all-expenses paid week-long training workshop at the Chicago Botanic Garden. In addition, the CLM Internship Program provides opportunities to make connections in various governmental and non-profit organizations, to learn what it’s like to work at a federal agency, to explore your career goals and expand your resume.
Applications are due January 15th but we review applications on a rolling basis – the sooner your application is complete, the sooner we can review your files and consider you for available positions!
