SUNBURY — The Northumberland County Conservation District (NCCD) is currently accepting resumes for full time (40 hours per week) internship positions during the summer months of 2014 (May through August). Interns will be involved in the following projects: stream bank restorations which will include the installation of fish habitat structures, the evaluation of traffic counts for paved low volume roads, assistance with several farm projects involving the installation of bmps (best management practices), assistance with the writing of manure management and agricultural erosion and sedimentation plans, and additional duties performed in the daily operations of the District. The selected candidates will gain experiences in the areas of project management, conservation issues and potential resolutions, environmental education, conservation practices, public relations, and working in local government.
The interested candidates should currently be enrolled in either an undergraduate- or graduate-degree program, preferably with an environmental or agricultural emphasis, and be highly motivated with the ability to work independently. Interns may be required to use their own vehicle.
The work hours will consist of 40 hours per week from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. This is an unpaid position. NCCD will work with the school’s internship coordinator if this experience can be used for class credit.
Students may submit a cover letter and resume directly to the Northumberland County Conservation District, Attn: Judy Becker, 441 Plum Creek Road, Sunbury, PA 17801. Resumes will be accepted until the positions are filled.
