Natural Resource Management Summer Internships

NRM Field Technicians at Clear Creek Reservoir

NRM Summer Internships Provide Professional Experience

Natural Resource Management summer interns had a busy summer working as Field Technicians for the Timberline Institute. Technicians worked on a series of projects, ranging from identifying plants in high altitude wetlands to teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education for local, Lake County K-12 students in the Rockies Rock summer camp program.

The Timberline Field Institute provides opportunities for paid internships for NRM Students. The Natural Resource Management Timberline Field Institute offers students unique internship opportunities to directly interact with environmental professionals. Student field technicians have worked on projects with organizations like the EPA, BLM, USFS and USGS. Interns obtain relevant field and laboratory experience including field monitoring, sample laboratory analysis, data entry and report writing.

Check out a few of the images below to learn about the various projects NRM Summer interns were involved in. Learn more about the Natural Resource Management program at Colorado Mountain College Leadville by visiting the NRM website or check out the FAQ’s on the NRM program here.
