AmeriCorps Conservation Interns
AmeriCorps Conservation Interns (ages 18-25) serve alongside natural resource professionals with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge or the U.S. Forest Service at the Chippewa National Forest. Each internship is focused to help develop the Conservation Interns’ professional skill sets while providing expertise and valuable contributions to the host site. Conservation Interns receive training, supervision and guidance from experienced agency and Conservation Corps staff, learning hands-on skills in managing natural resources and conducting public outreach.
Conservation Interns will be assigned to one of four areas:
- Visitor and outreach services (Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge or Chippewa National Forest)
- Trails and grounds maintenance (Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge)
- Biological inventory, monitoring and restoration (Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge)
- Road monitoring, inventory and survey (Chippewa National Forest)
