Spend the summer of 2013 interning with INHF!

By Taylor on January 22, 2013 in Blog


Love the outdoors and making a difference where you live? Spend your summer helping to restore Iowa’s natural beauty while learning about ecology, land management, and wildlife!

INHF is looking for a group of motivated college students or recent graduates to serve as land stewardship interns for the summer of 2013.

Land stewardship interns work very hard to maintain and restore native landscapes across the state. Last year, interns helped INHF to manage more than 20 sites across Iowa. These interns conduct needed land management and restoration on prairies, wetlands, savannas and other natural areas owned or protected by INHF. Interns will also assist with equipment maintenance when necessary (training provided as needed).

INHF selects 8 to 10 full-time, paid interns each summer. The job begins May 13th and ends after the first week of August. These interns work 40 hours a week (Monday through Thursday, 10 hours each) and are required to camp at parks near the work sites.

Not sure if you’re interested? Take a look at some of the great work last year’s land stewardship interns did on INHF properties around Iowa.

Deadline for application: February 12, 2013
