**WE REGRET TO INFORM INTERESTED APPLICANTS THAT THE SPRING 2021 INTERNSHIP TERM HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. WE HOPE TO RESUME THE PROGRAM FOR THE SUMMER 2021 SEMESTER**
The Russian River Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring Program recruits volunteer interns three times each year. The winter/spring season runs from January through May, the summer season from June through August, and the fall season from August through October. Interns are trained to assist with fish and environmental monitoring techniques, which vary by season. A commitment of two fulls days per week is required. College credit is available, but it is not necessary to be enrolled in college to participate.
Watershed Stewards Program
Our program also hosts two California Conservation Corps AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Project members each year. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in making a 10-month commitment to gain valuable experience in all aspects of working with a salmonid research and recovery program. Positions generally open in April of each year. More information can be found here.
