Each year, the Conservation and Land Management (CLM) internship program places 100-120 graduates from colleges and universities across the country in five-month paid internships to assist biologists and other professional staff who work with a variety of federal agencies as well as non-profits focused on conservation efforts. In 2017, internships will be based in the western US (AK, AZ, CA, CO, ID, OR, MT, NM, NV, UT, WA, and WY), with a small number on the east coast (MA, NC, NY). The federal agencies we partner with include the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), U.S. D. A. Forest Service (USDA FS), U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS), U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and others. Non-profit partners include the the Mid-Atlantic Regional Seed Bank and the Rae Selling Berry Seed Bank.
Since 2001, the CLM program has successfully placed over 1,150 interns, providing them with a rich experience from which to launch their professional careers.
CLM internships provide hands-on opportunities in botany and/or wildlife-related fields that may include monitoring or assessing threatened and endangered species and habitats.
