Academic Level:
Post-Baccalaureate

Description:
Each year, the Conservation and Land Management Internship Program places 75-100 college graduates in five-month paid internships to assist biologists with our federal (BLM, NPS, FWS, FS, USGS and others) and non-profit partners. Interns gain hands-on experience applying their education in real-world setting, make connections in various governmental and non-profit organizations, to learn what it's like to work at a federal agency, explore their career goals and expand their resumes. Projects focus on botany/botany & wildlife biology and include seed collection for conservation & restoration, rare & invasive species monitoring, vegetation inventory & monitoring and post-fire re-vegetation. Applicants with strong botany experience are especially encouraged to apply!

CLM interns earn a stipend of $1,224 - $1,440 (dependent on experience, education, and internship responsibilities) every two weeks and participate in an all-expenses paid week-long training workshop at the Chicago Botanic Garden. We encourage applicants to apply soon as we review applications on a rolling basis - the sooner your application is complete, the sooner we can review your files and consider you for available positions!

The CLM Program is administered by the Chicago Botanic Garden.
