Internship opportunity

If you are going to be around this summer here's a nice little opportunity to get involved with a local conservation project. Note the low time commitment and the convenient location - only about a 10 minute bike ride from campus.

LOCAL INTERNSHIPS: Habitat Restoration Maintenance -- Storke Ranch Vernal Pools

Work with a conservation biologist on this local restoration project sponsored by the Coastal Fund and the Storke Ranch Homeowner's Association.

Interns will participate in invasive plant control (weeding), vegetation surveys, and possibly some photo-documentation, seed collecting, nursery work, and planting.

This is a great opportunity to gain valuable hands-on field experience and obtain skills in plant identification and other aspects of restoration.

Contact Kelly Hildner -- or 685-3621 to request an application.

Hours/week: 2-6

Location: Storke Ranch is an easy bike ride from the university.
Positions: Volunteer internships are available.
