Recruiting Interns for Habitat Restoration

Six summer interns will have some exciting work this summer with some new experiential service-learning activities in our local communities. The summer internships involve a few less classroom hours and a few more activities outside working with partners to complete important restoration and native plant nursery work.

We will continue fulfilling our first habitat restoration scope of work with a local landowner, and continue developing our native plant nursery sites. We also plan to harvest wildland seeds so we can restore some species native to our local area; remove invasives from a slough where wapato, the traditional First Food, has been discovered; and begin to survey a side channel of the North Santiam River where beavers have made their home.

Applicants for the Fall 2024 Habitat Restoration Internship opportunity are encouraged to apply. If your earth-based career pathways align with our plans to develop and expand several new conservation, horticultural and agricultural businesses, we would love to hear from you. You may be interested in our habitat restoration work restoring degraded properties; our native plant nursery development work repopulating native seed populations diminished by recent wildfires in our area; or pursuing your commitment to Food Sovereignty by developing a cooperative organic farm and/or farmer’s market business.  Interns will receive a $3,000 stipend for completing the nine-week internship.

Please contact us if you’d like to be considered for the Fall 2024 internship:
