Conservation Intern Now Enrolling April/May 2017 — 18 Years of Age or Older

MCC's Conservation Intern program provides opportunities for college students and recent graduates to serve Montana and surrounding areas through internships.  During the summer season, Conservation Interns serve at partnering federal, state, and nonprofit agencies. 

Each internship is focused to help develop the interns’ professional skill set while providing expertise and valuable contributions to the host site.  Conservation Interns serve on a variety of projects including GPS and GIS projects, river ranger patrols, wildlife inventory, data analysis, public outreach and education, trails projects, research, and invasive weeds management.  Conservation Interns receive training, supervision, and guidance from experienced agency and MCC mentors. Current students or recent graduates in the fields of resource conservation, forestry, biology, or environmental studies are encouraged to apply.
