The 2020 OneCreek Internship has been extended into Fall 2020. Applications are now being accepted!
UPDATE: Application is closed. After a successful summer internship season, Putah Creek Council has decided to extend our internship program into the fall months. This program is popular among people looking to gain experience in the habitat restoration and conservation fields. Providing hands-on experiences to participants, the internship creates connections between interns and representatives from local agencies/ stakeholders within 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 and job training in these career paths.
In addition, the program will consist of days devoted to science skills development. In an effort to expose participants to the science behind the various restoration projects and research being conducted in the region, PCC has reached out to various experts in the area. Possible activities will include stream and water quality monitoring, introduction to state of the art bee sanctuaries, plant collection techniques, and much more!
The Fall 2020 Internship program is set to run for ~9 weeks from October 1st through December 3rd. There will be a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday. Program participants will work under the supervision of Putah Creek Council staff to gain hands-on experience with plant care and planting, but also gain knowledge and experience from meeting and working alongside other regional restoration professionals.
