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 (firstname.lastname@example.org
