SSH Seminar Series: Exploring Conservation Fieldwork through Immersive Undergraduate Internships
Now entering its eighth year, the Harris Center for Conservation Education-KSC conservation internship program is an innovative, two-month field internship experience for undergraduates in environmental studies, biology, and related fields. Under the guidance of Harris Center staff and KSC faculty, a team of four interns gains specialized training and firsthand experience with many facets of the Harris Center’s diverse work each season, with a special focus on ecological inventory. Together, the interns document vernal pools, inventory forest communities and invasive plants, survey road-stream crossings for fish passage and flood potential, and more. In this presentation, Karen Seaver (KSC Department of Environmental Studies), Brett Amy Thelen (Harris Center), and current KSC students who are recent alumni of the internship program share some highlights from their shared work.
