Internships

CFC offers college and high school paid internships. We can also provide support for college and graduate study projects.

College Internships

Our  college-level summer internships, established in 1993, are a 10-week paid program that provides college students in the environmental sciences hands-on experience in restoration management methods and proven techniques. A number of interns have gone on to successful careers in environmental fields.

For the ten-week period beginning in late May, our interns actively participate in the ongoing restoration of CFC properties. Activities include planting native sedge/forbs, seed gathering, weeding, brush cutting and removal of invasive species. Interns take part in innovative restoration techniques being undertaken at various stages of the land management/restoration cycle.

In addition to the restoration activities, interns assist in CFC's Youth Education program by working with children in activities designed to inspire and encourage future involvement in our ongoing preservation efforts.

Candidates should be currently enrolled in college with a preferred area of study in environmental science or related field.

 

High School Internships
Our high school-level summer internships are a one-week program  similar to our college internship program. Candidates should be involved in environmental studies or clubs with an interest in conservation.
Interested candidates should email a resume to [email protected]
