Restoration Ecology Summer Intern
Each summer, Lake Forest Open Lands hires 6-8 college or post-graduate students as Restoration Ecology Interns. These students work with LFOLA staff and gain hands-on experience within the field of ecology. This nine-week paid internship focuses on restoring degraded wildlife habitat, preserving high-quality prairie parcels and maintaining public trails as well as increasing knowledge of native flora and fauna. The internship also has a direct educational component—Intern Education Days—and is acheieved with field trips to other local environmental organizations each week.
$4,000 sponsors a Restoration Ecology Intern for the summer.
