Environmental Stewardship Intern

May - August 2019 • Lewes, DE

What I liked

It was a great opportunity to begin building a network in the environmental science field, and it was great hands-on experiencing using what is learned in wildlife and forest management courses.

What I wish was different

I would have liked if the interns got more exposure to the planning and actual "management" side of things, most of the time was focused on field work.

Advice

This is a great opportunity to see how environmental practices are applied to the field and is a great resume builder for future internships and jobs
