Application is open to current students or new graduates studying estuary science, marine science, biology or other related fields. Interns will be engaged in a combination of field and office work in applied science and restoration techniques related to the CIB’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.  

The Science and Restorations Intern will report to the CIB’s Environmental Scientist, but will also work extensively with other program staff. They will provide field and office support for science and restoration projects, such as water quality monitoring, shellfish enhancement projects, and natural resource surveys. Duties will include tasks such as collection of water quality data and maintenance of monitoring equipment, assistance with science surveys (horseshoe crabs, fish, aquatic vegetation), basic land management and conservation tasks, and assistance with outreach and public events.
