The intern will have the opportunity to develop the following skills: invasive plant ecology, taxonomy and identification; invasive species management practices including survey and treatment methods; and experience using programs such as Microsoft Excel, ArcGIS 10, ArcPad 10 and DNR Garmin.
Work hours / internship duration:
Interns are expected to work a minimum of 40 hours per week during the summer months (June-September). Flex time will be given for weeks where interns are expected to work on Saturdays.
Compensation is dependent on college enrollment. Individuals who have just graduated will also be considered. School attendance is not required during the summer break. $9.50 per hour to start; $10.50 after 520 hours. This is a non-benefited position.
