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 professional staff at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), US Forest Service (USFS), US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and US Geological Survey (USGS). Internships are primarily located in the western United States, including Alaska! Each internship is unique and may focus on botany, wildlife, or a combination of the two. Interns assist in a wide variety of projects depending on the needs of each 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 botanical backgrounds 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 $11,900 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.
