Do you want to help protect the natural and working landscapes of Vermont and New England, while also getting experience that can lead to jobs with groups like The Nature Conservancy, The Trust for Public Lands, and state agencies?
Do you like working outside, in the woods, out in nature?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, consider the Land Stewardship (LANDS) Program, an innovative summer internship being offer the summer of 2013 through the University of Vermont in Burlington and Student Conservation Association.
LANDS interns work to support land-use agencies in their land conservation efforts. In particular there are many small land trusts and towns that need help. Land trusts are one of the fastest growing sectors of land conservation (1700 nationally) and collectively they have conserved an area 16X the size of Yellowstone.
Spend your summer in Vermont doing land conservation and stewardship work!
