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. Interns also will assist teacher/naturalists in school programs for grades K-8, lead day, evening, and weekend programs at the center, and help with general operations.
The Resident Bird Study focuses on examining the annual cycle for black-capped chickadees, red-breasted nuthatches, white-breasted nuthatches, and tufted titmice, the study involves banding birds/nestlings, re-sighting birds, point counts, nest box grid survey, and nest searching. Prior bird handling and experience with GIS/GPS and some statistics would be helpful. The project takes place on Tin Mountain’s 140-acre Rockwell Sanctuary. This internship will run for 6 months, beginning in April 2019.
