Trout Unlimited (TU) is seeking qualified individuals to serve as full-time biological field interns from mid-May to August 2017 for the Pennsylvania Coldwater Habitat Restoration Program. TU's Pennsylvania Coldwater Habitat Restoration Program targets the improvement of coldwater habitat viability and availability for native brook trout across the commonwealth. To accomplish this, TU staff work to improve water quality through abandoned coal mine cleanup; reduce non-point source sediment pollution through streambank stabilization, riparian reforestation, installation of instream habitat structures, and improvement of dirt and gravel roads; increase flood resiliency and aquatic organism passage through addressing problematic road-stream crossings. The Biological field Intern positions are based out of TU’s field office in Lock Haven, PA, and will report directly to the Field and Research Manager for daily work tasks, but will coordinate and work on projects as a team member with all staff.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The intern will be compensated with a stipend of $4,300 for a 12 week term. If the intern is unable to work the full 12 weeks, the stipend amount will be amended accordingly. Travel-related expenses will be reimbursable, such as mileage incurred when using a personal vehicle to and from project sites.
