Work to restore UCSB campus natural areas for local plants and wildlife through an internship with CCBER for fall quarter 2011. Students will gain valuable hands-on field experience restoring native wetland, coastal sage scrub, grassland and oak woodland habitats. Internship activities include plant propagation, seed collection, planting, weeding, and ecological monitoring. Learn about local plants and animals, earn course credit, meet environmental professionals in your community, and enjoy a beautiful outdoor working environment!
All interns must complete the following for 1 unit of credit: 3 hours of
fieldwork per week, creation of a plant collection notebook and restoration
journal. To earn course credit, you must be an EEMB, ENVST, GEOG or CCS
student and meet the minimum requirements for your department. Once the 10
week internship program has been completed, there may be paid opportunities
for the following quarter. Volunteer opportunities are also available in
museum curation, wildlife research, and restoration!
