LOOKING FOR A FUN SUMMER OUTDOOR JOB?
The Lake Erie Islands Conservancy, Put-in-Bay Township Park District (PIBTPD), and the Lake Erie Islands Nature and Wildlife Center (LEINWC) are looking to hire an AmeriCorps Environmental Steward Intern for the summer of 2019. It is a ten week program working a minimum of 30 hrs per week. Interns are provided a small stipend biweekly and a Segal Educational Award at the completion of the internship-to be used for qualified student loans or tuition. The intern will work on projects like trail maintenance, invasive plant management, grant writing, design of signs and brochures, social media, wildlife and plant surveys, nest box monitoring, etc. for the Conservancy and the PIBTPD depending on the skill set of the intern. For the LEINWC, the intern can assist with tours, Wild Tuesday, Nature Camp, native wildlife and our pollinator exhibits, community events and outreach, and monitoring the phenology garden and pollinator gardens. Applicants must be at least 17 years old. Preference is given to university students but a high school education is all that is required to use the education award. It is necessary to have island housing. If interested, contact Lisa Brohl at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-366-2087.
