The Conservation and Land Management Internship Program is now accepting applications for 2017! Apply online at http://www.clminternship.org
Each year, the Conservation and Land Management Internship Program places 100-120
college graduates in five-month paid internships to assist biologists with our federal (BLM,
NPS, FWS, FS, USGS and others) and non-profit partners. 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 $13,500 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 encourage applicants to apply soon as 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!
