Conservation Intern Program

MCC’s Conservation Intern (CI) program provides opportunities for young adults to gain professional experience in a conservation-related field.  Conservation Interns serve at partnering federal/state agencies, nonprofits, tribal offices, and other community-based conservation organizations across Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Idaho.

The Conservation Intern program is designed to make a measurable difference in local conservation efforts while strengthening the professional experience of our members. Interns are placed individually with a partner organization and work under the direct supervision of the Host Site Supervisor, while coordinating with MCC staff to ensure successful completion of the program objectives.  CIs serve on a variety of projects including mapping projects, habitat enhancement, data analysis, public outreach and education, trails projects, research, and invasive species management.  

Please contact our staff at ipprograms@mtcorps.org or 406-587-4475 with any questions.
