The 2019 summer internship is currently underway. Registration is closed, but please keep an eye out for future announcements!
For six years, Putah Creek Council has offered hands-on training in habitat restoration and plant propagation to students and community members interested in pursuing careers in conservation. In the One Creek | Putah Creek Summer Restoration Internship Program, interns from Putah Creek Council, the U.C. Davis Putah Creek Riparian Reserve (UCD), and the Solano County Water Agency (SCWA) work together at a native plant nursery and at multiple project sites in the Putah Creek watershed. Working with experts in habitat restoration, native plant landscaping, outdoor recreation management, native plant propagation, and nursery operations, interns are offered an introduction to and receive basic hands-on experience in these career paths.
Internships are a valuable way to gain job skills, learn about a profession, receive mentorship, and be part of an important local community effort. Interns who successfully complete their internship receive a stipend of up to $600.
The 2019 Summer Intern schedule will be 18 June - 14 August; on Tuesdays, 8:30-11:30 AM at the native plant nursery in South Davis, and on Wednesdays, 8:30–11:30 AM at various restoration sites in Yolo and Solano Counties with Putah Creek Council partners. Interns will work under the supervision of Putah Creek Council staff.
