Native Plant Trust is offering one 13-week Marylee Everett Conservation Internship for this next field season. The conservation internship offers a range of learning opportunities in areas that are integral to NEPCoP and the PCV program, from coordinating with landowners and volunteers to conducting botanical surveys and processing data. The intern will work with conservation staff to create a personal education plan, have the opportunity to take Native Plant Trust's educational programs and courses at no cost, and participate in seminars and an informal reading and discussion group in the conservation department.

In addition, the intern will complete an independent project on a topic of interest in botany, ecology, and/or conservation. Depending on COVID-19 restrictions, interns based in New England will also have the option of participating in botanically-interesting field trips and seasonal contract work, which may include the planning and implementation of habitat restoration and management activities, invasive species initiatives, and seed collection.

Candidates should be passionate about plant conservation, have some familiarity with the flora of New England and associated ecological systems, excellent speaking and writing skills, a willingness to call landowners to secure access to their property, and a sense of humor. Experience with volunteers and data management is preferred. Interns must respect and maintain the confidentiality of rare species locations and sensitive data.

Location: Based at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, MA (pending state of COVID-19 pandemic) with remote option available. Both in-person and remote options will have the potential for field trips and site visits. Hours and Compensation: 40 hours/week at $14.25/hour.
