Natural Resource Management
Interns work directly with our land management staff on projects associated with our preserves such as trail building & maintenance, invasive plant removal, tree & wiregrass planting, site preparation for prescribed burns, native plant and wildlife surveys, and various other restoration activities.
Land management work is often physically rigorous and interns may be exposed to heat, cold, rain, biting insects and other unavoidable elements. However, personal safety and preparedness training are an essential part of the program. Additionally, interns are provided with opportunities to meet with a variety of local land management professionals to learn about career paths and opportunities.
The schedule for this internship is two full days per week and varies each semester. Preference will be given to applicants that are available for full workdays on the chosen days, but ACT is willing to work with folks who have scheduling conflicts to the extent that our management activities allow.
Internships follow UF’s schedule and run on a semester basis (Fall, Spring, Summer).
