Each year, the Conservation and Land Management (CLM) internship program places 100-120 college graduates in five-month paid internships to assist professional biologists with land management and conservation projects. Since 2001, the CLM program has successfully placed over 1300 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.
Most of our internships are located in the western US, where the majority of public land occurs. Federal partners 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.
