[Nhee-l] Brook Trout Habitat Restoration Internship

From New Hampshire Environmental Educators Posting.

Know someone looking for a great way to be outside this summer and get paid?…

Tin Mountain Conservation Center is a non-profit organization providing environmental programs that foster greater awareness and understanding of the natural environment for school children, adults, and families. Interns will be paired with staff mentors who will provide orientation, establish weekly work plans, and help network with other organizations.

We are seeking interns for spring/summer 2017 field season.

The Brook Trout Habitat Restoration Project involves research on the influence of adding woody material to small streams to enhance size and abundance of brook trout populations. The intern/s will be involved in collecting baseline information on all streams, electro-fishing, making wood additions, and re-assessing streams treated up to 8 years ago. The project involves strenuous work as well as extensive data collections on physical and biological attributes of streams, water chemistry, and fish populations. The intern/s will work with volunteers and staff to collect/analyze data and report results. 

In addition, the interns will conduct routine timberland maintenance including blazing property boundaries and will spend some time working on a trail crew and will be required to do light maintenance at the Nature Learning Center. Candidates should have a background in fish biology and a basic knowledge of forestry and tree identification skills. Experience with GPS and GIS (ArcMap) and statistical analysis are preferred. 

The internship will begin late spring/summer 2017 and run for 3 months, depending on availability.

Compensation for all internships is $1000/month plus housing.

Interested applicants should email a resume and cover letter, including dates of availability, to Nora Dufilho (nbeem@tinmountain.org).
