The intern/s will work with volunteers and staff to collect/analyze data and report results.
In addition, the interns will spend some time working on trails & grounds maintenance and an invasive species management project. 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.
