Natural Resource Program Internships
Internship positions available are involved with vegetation ecology, biological monitoring, GIS, and GPS. Ecological monitoring methods, mapping, and plant identification will be central skills developed. Interns' activities will support such projects as updating rare plant and weed distribution maps and assisting with our bioblitz. Mentorship is provided by MMWD's volunteer coordinator, vegetation ecologist, and GIS specialist.
Recent Projects Have Included
- Sudden Oak Death monitoring
- Forest succession monitoring in relation to Douglas-fir encroachment, lack of fire and French broom
- Botanical Safaris
- GIS mapping of all culverts on the mountain
- Habitat and visitor use assessment of creeks for frog re-introduction
- Smolt trapping in Lagunitas Creek
- Rare plant mapping
- Wildlife Picture Index Project cataloging and camera servicing
A Saturday volunteer event would be a great place for potential interns to get an introduction to the watershed and meet staff. We have habitat restoration events one or two Saturdays per month. Visit our Habitat Restoration page for more information, details and directions.
