Invasive Species Intern – Work Study
Wild Basin is seeking two enthusiastic and responsible students who love the outdoors to assist with resource management at Wild Basin. Among the largest threats to Wild Basin are invasive species found within the preserve. Interns primary tasks will be locating, identifying, and removing, and reporting invasive species. Intern will be trained on and given resources for invasive species identification and removal and will complete a related project to be determined through discussion with intern. The right fit for this position will be someone looking to acquire new job skills and professional experience in land management with a focus on invasive species. Must enjoy working outside in adverse conditions on rough terrain. Fieldwork will be limited to 3 hours or less per session. Safety is foremost and you will be working “alone together” with another intern or Wild Basin Preserve Manager when in the field. Hours are flexible, but we require a commitment of 10 hours at Wild Basin per week. Preference given to upper class and graduate students. Adherence to Covid guidelines and restrictions is expected. Completion of Healthy Hilltopper testing and daily symptom screening is required.
To apply, please send a resume, a short cover letter, and contact information for two references to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, please indicate availability during the week.
