Description
Environment for the Americas coordinates diversity internship programs for many organizations. Our goals are to provide science-based internships and other career-building experiences for racially and ethnically diverse undergraduate, graduate, and recently graduated students to increase relevance, diversity and inclusion in national parks, national forests, and other public lands and natural areas. Job Description: The interns would work on a project conducting Land Health Assessment (LHA) monitoring using Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring (AIM) methods. In addition, when vegetation monitoring occurs in Greater Sage Grouse (GRSG) habitat, vegetation monitoring would also assess GRSG habitat suitability using Habitat Assessment Framework (HAF) methods. The data collected in the field would be used to inform GRSG Habitat Suitability Assessments and would be used in the GRSG Habitat Summary Reports. This project directly supports the implementation of the Nevada and Northeastern California Greater Sage-Grouse Approved Resource Management Plan Amendment. Those with experience with field research, data collection/entry, vegetation identification/surveys, technical writing, and using topographical maps are highly encouraged to apply. Start/End Date: Due to trainings the recommended start date would be April 15th though could be pushed back to May 6th at the latest. There is a possibility of more trainings that could make the start date more flexible. This Internship will run 11 weeks. Apply at https://www.environmentamericas.org/apply/ .
