Mississippi Valley Conservancy
Application Deadline: 
May 15, 2019

Mississippi Valley Conservancy is a regional, non-profit land trust based in La Crosse, WI that has permanently conserved over 20,000 acres of blufflands, prairies, wetlands, and streams in southwestern Wisconsin.

We will be hiring 4 paid Land Management Interns who will assist with habitat management and restoration of native prairie, forest, oak savanna, and wetland habitat on Conservancy protected lands throughout southwest Wisconsin. Managing the ecological health of the natural communities throughout the Mississippi River Valley is rewarding hard work. Interns may gain skills and expertise in aspects of wildlife habitat management, including species identification, GIS mapping, timber stand improvement, prairie planting, oak savanna and prairie restoration, invasive species control, and trail maintenance. In addition to the boots-on-the-ground land management and restoration experience, interns may assist with public speaking, leading public hikes, volunteer work days, and helping with environmental education.
